Abstract

Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is extremely common and is clearly established as the cause of cervical cancer. Cervical cancer is the third most common cancer in women worldwide. In China, the current annual incident rate is 9.4%, ranking as the second most frequent cancer among women between 15-44 years old. Vaccines and screening are important public health prevention methods in public health. However, in China, HPV vaccines are still under clinical trials and the coverage of cervical cancer screening is deficient. Furthermore, geographic differences in the oncogenic HPV types and the wealth gap address the importance of localized approaches for HPV-related cervical cancer prevention and control by integration of a screening and vaccination program. In order to promote vaccination and screening, it is essential to train heath care providers and educate the public about HPV and cervical cancer awareness. This essay discusses the current burden of HPV-related cervical cancer and the barriers for women to accept HPV vaccine and cervical cancer screening, summarizes the challenges in China and suggests public health strategies to promote HPV vaccination and cervical cancer screening in China to reduce the incidence rate of cervical cancer as well as related health care costs.
