The National AHEC
Organization was recently awarded funding from the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention for a 2015-16 project to provide education to health
professionals regarding the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine. The award
supports the hiring of a national leadership team, evaluation staff and 10 HPV
Regional Coordinators to coordinate activities in each region, assess the
environment, work with states and build partnerships. Selected AHEC state

as train health professionals about the HPV vaccine.
