DR Vaccination Program Began

The Dominican Republic’s government, with the support of both the Ministry of Health and Education, launched a campaign on Monday to vaccinate about 200,000 schoolgirls between the ages of 9-10 against the human papillomavirus (HPV).

This campaign began as a result of the work conducted by Saving Mothers. Saving Mothers has been working directly with the First Lady in the implementation of such a campaign.

We are very excited about this vaccination program and we hope that these efforts will lead to a substantial decrease in the number of women diagnosed with cervical cancer.
