HPV accounts for 5.2% of the worldwide cancer burden, including all cervical cancers, 50% of penile cancers and 88% of anal cancers. Two vaccines have recently been developed and licensed to target specific oncogenic and non-oncogenic types of HPV. In 2006, the Canadian government supported a vaccination program for girls aged 9 to 13 and female vaccination rates in this population in Canada now range from 50% in Alberta to 86% in Quebec. There are compelling reasons to include boys in the vaccination campaign as well. Two provmces have recently stated their intention to do so. Perceptions of individuals and parents are important in vaccine acceptance. Understanding how their decisions are made will help design measures to improve vaccine uptake.
