The NZ HPV Project

To meet the need for frank, open discussion about genital HPV, we've founded the HPV Project. The HPV Project is about support and education.

Our objectives:

  • To provide up-to-date information and non judgmental support to people with genital HPV.
  • To provide health and medical professionals with user-friendly educational material that will assist with the diagnosis, treatment and management of genital warts, and genital HPV.
  • To educate the public about the prevalence, transmission and management of genital HPV thereby reducing the stigma and fear associated with this common infection.

Now, and in the future, the HPV Project will make a positive difference by:

  • Operating a national toll free number that offers easy access to information.
  • Working alongside doctors and health professionals to encourage the best possible care for people with genital HPV.
  • Providing the information that makes it easier for people with genital HPV to talk about their condition with partners and friends.
  • Providing ongoing consensus guidelines for the medical management of genital HPV, including a resource package for doctors to give to their patients.
  • Conducting public education campaigns to increase general awareness about genital HPV, to reduce stigma and provide information on management and prevention.
  • Developing a website that carries information for all our audiences - medical professionals, patients and the general public.

Who are we?

The HPV project has been developed by a group of professionals who are committed to improving the knowledge about and management of sexually transmitted viral infections.

A Professional Advisory Board has been appointed to advise the project on medical management and ensure all our information is accurate and up-to-date.
