The Oregon Immunization Program has partnered with Oregon Health and Science University on the Rural Adolescent Vaccine Enterprise (RAVE) study funded by the American Cancer Society. Recruitment for the intervention phase will begin in January 2019. We hope many of you will participate in this important study, which will provide your practice members with vital quality improvement skills.

The American Cancer Society and the Oregon Immunization Program hosted the 2018 Oregon HPV Statewide Summit in Salem, Oregon on May 31, 2018. The HPV Statewide Summit served as a call to action for Oregonians to help reduce the number of HPV-associated cancers by supporting improved vaccine uptake and HPV vaccination rates at county and state levels through education and collaboration.
Update: March 2017
The HPV Coalition of Oregon has brought together representatives from American Cancer Society, Oregon Health Authority, Providence Health & Services, Indian Health Services, Oregon Health and Sciences University, county health departments, and more.

Ideas were formed around clinical capacity building, increasing vaccine uptake, provider training, and increasing public awareness.
