March 4th is International HPV Awareness Day (IHAD). Inaugurated by IPVS in 2018, the annual IHAD campaign is part of our commitment to increase worldwide awareness and education about HPV and how it affects us all.


The IHAD campaign targets the public. It is designed to grab attention and encourage people to get informed about HPV and take action to manage the risk of HPV-related cancer. IPVS has been joined by over 100 operating partners around the world, working together to help raise awareness of HPV on March 4th and throughout the year.

The Campaign 2021 theme is HPV: A virus we ALL can Beat. It has been our most successful campaign to date in terms of reach and impact. To access the Campaign 2021 Report, click here.

On March 4th, 2021, IPVS hosted a great high-level panel event to commemorate IHAD, entitled: Accelerating Progress Against HPV-related in the era of COVID-19.
