Dr Clifford speaks with ecancertv at IARC 2016 with short-to-medium term results of HPV vaccinations across Bhutan and Rwanda to reduce virus transmission, with further surveillance required to monitor cervical cancer incidence.

He notes that distribution of the vaccination program through schools had wider uptake than distribution in the community.

Dr Clifford also explains further investigation into pre-vaccination levels of infection among young women, and the potential impacts of HIV infection in this group.
