Research Campaign Group: More For Men

Slogan: I AM HPV (Initiating Awareness for Men:HPV)

Members: Jerdenne, Letoria, Monde, Ruth and Suad

Campaign Outline:

HPV (Human papilloma virus) is a virus that can lead to cancer. It can be transmitted through oral, anal or normal sex. Recently a new scheme was introduced vaccinating any female under 18 against the virus for free. So most female teenagers currently are vaccinated against it. However a documentary was conducted on HPV and it was found that the male sex can contract it easily. The documentary also contained a case study of a man who caught cancer from HPV. Our campaign is to raise awareness for young people about the virus; to find out why young boys aren’t being offered the vaccination for free also and to “possibly” persuade the NHS that they should.


  • · To spread awareness of the HPV virus for men
  • · To alert public of the seriousness of the virus for men especially and the dangers it can cause
