Yesterday we told about the Ministry of Health’s plan to vaccinate 4000 young girls from standard four with the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) Vaccine. The ministry’s end goal is to decrease the number of cervical cancer patients overtime since the HPV is known to be the leading cause for cervical cancer. This is the first time that the vaccine is being administered in Belize and Director of Health Services, Dr. Marvin Manzanero told us where Belize stands in the region.

Consultations with parents have been scheduled for this month.
