A pilot programme offering human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine to men who have sex with men up to the age of 45 who attend participating HIV and genitourinary medicine Mclinics started on 6 June 2016.

Information on the number of HPV vaccinations administered during the pilot is being collected and, as such, is not yet available. It is anticipated that initial validated data covering the period up to the end of September will be available in late November.
