Hpv Male Children Vaccination





History Logs

Project Description

Region: North America

Country: Mexico

Location: Nuevo Laredo

Total Budget: $103,282

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

I am a member of the Rotary Club of Nuevo Laredo, from the 4130 District with residence in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, Mexico, and my club is now interested in participating in a very, very high social impact project related to public health; this project involves mass vaccination of male children of the vaccine against human papillomavirus (HPV), vaccination program that is not part of the public (Governmental) health project in Mexico.

We are planning to vaccinate around 3,300 boys in Nuevo Laredo. Since men is the carrier of the HPV, every boy can spread the virus to 3-5 girls!!!.

Back in 2009, we had a Rotary Program here in our Club that Vaccinate 900 girls to the HPV in Nuevo Laredo. Then the Federal Mexican Government took it and made it to the public for free. Now we want to start with vaccination of Nuevo Laredo male Children. These are some important facts:

HPV is a powerful agent that causes cancer, "could be the second most common after tobacco".

700 million people are infected with HPV worldwide.

5.5 million cases occur every year.

75% of the infections are acquired between 15 and 24 years old.

80 % of sexually active people (women and men) have the infection at some point in their lives and most are asymptomatic carriers.

Avoiding the infection in males is considered to help prevent the transmission of HPV to other people.

The diseases caused by HPV are: cervical, vaginal, vulvar, penile and anal cancer; head and neck cancer; genital warts and papillomatosis oropharyngeal.

My club and the DIF system of the city of Nuevo Laredo are economically involved in this project.

The total cost of the project is of [$103,281.75 US Dlls] and the participation that we are looking for from a foreign club that is interested in participating in the project in accordance with the rules for global grants is of $15,889.50 US Dlls.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit).
