Continuing declines in genital warts in young women and heterosexual men: population effects of the national quadrivalent HPV vaccination in Australia, 2004-2010

Dr Basil Donovan

From mid-2007 Australia funded a universal free vaccination program for all females between 12 and 26 years, but not for men or for women who were older than 26 years. Vaccine coverage rates of ~80% were achieved for school-girls, though coverage was probably lower for young women in the community. To determine the population effect of the vaccine program we established a national surveillance network to measure trends in clinical presentations for genital warts. Eight sexual health services dispersed around Australia provided data on all new patients between 2004 and 2010, including new diagnoses of genital warts, demographics, sexual behaviour, and HPV vaccination status (Lancet Inf Dis 2011;11:39).
