The General Objective of PERCH is to contribute to the implementation of Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan, which aims to support Member States’ e­fforts to extend the roll-out of routine HPV vaccination of girls and boys to eliminate cervical cancer and other cancers caused by HPV in the coming decade.

PERCH objectives:

Improve capacities of Member States to plan and implement HPV vaccination campaigns by sharing knowledge and experience. Improve data and monitoring system on HPV vaccination and HPV screening. Improve knowledge and awareness on HPV-related disease and prevention in specific target groups (adolescent girls and boys). Improve knowledge and abilities for healthcare professionals in HPV vaccine communication.

PERCH will contribute to achieve the first objective of the “90-70-90” WHO cervical cancer elimination strategy, of reaching at least 90% of HPV vaccine coverage among girls by the age of 15 years.
