/ about

As future physicians, we understand the importance of preventing sexually transmitted infections and counseling patients on safe sex practices.

 

 

 

However, multiple barriers lead to suboptimal screening and low immunization rates. One must have a doctor in order to receive proper screening or to get a referral for a gynecologist. A prescription is required to buy the HPV vaccine for patients who are not eligible to the Quebec immunization protocol, which also requires a doctor, not to mention the high cost of the product itself.

 

Our determination to tackle this issue stems from the devastating consequences of HPV, witnessed especially in oncology.

PAP tests and HPV immunization have both been shown
to decrease HPV-related diseases.
