#HPVAwarenessDay - 4th March 2023

HPV is very common - it's thought to be the most common sexually transmitted infection in the world, and most people are infected with HPV at some time in their lives. In a few people, HPV can cause abnormal cells which can sometimes lead to cancers, including cervical, vaginal, vulval, anal, head and neck cancers and penile cancers.

The HPV vaccine is highly effective: almost all HPV infections that cause abnormal cells and cancer can be prevented by the HPV vaccine. Meanwhile, regular cervical screening allows for any abnormal cells in the cervix to be found and treated long before they become cancer.

Awareness-raising about the HPV vaccine and cervical screening is therefore key - and HPV Awareness Day on 4th March is a great time to do that!

Here at STIEF we've got heaps of HPV resources for you:
  • We have a new HPV Vaccine Awareness poster - perfect for your clinic or waiting room. If you would like a copy, drop us an email via and we'll send you the pdfs.
  • Our dedicated HPV website:
  • HPV information pamphlets - you can download our pdfs or use the order form and we'll send you copies free of charge.
  • Our toll-free HPV helpline run by expert nurse counsellors: 0508 11 12 13 (or 09 433 6526 from a mobile).


We're recruiting!

We're looking for a part-time Administrator and Digital Communications Assistant to join our small team. This could be a great opportunity for someone looking to start out in the sexual health sector, and could work alongside other part-time work, commitments or studies. The job listing can be found here.
