CERVIVA: Making connections and creating impact

The goal of CERVIVA's education and outreach programme is to create awareness, inform and effectively engage the public, health care professionals and healthcare providers on public health issues related to HPV associated diseases and on the specific research programmes underway within CERVIVA, which are addressing some of these issues. Our goal is to motivate and engage the general public and health care providers to actively participate in the research, which will ultimately inform cancer prevention strategies in Ireland.
We will achieve this goal by engaging in a series of education and outreach activities with key stakeholders, including the general public, CervicalCheck and The National Cancer Control Programme, and health care providers. Our education and outreach programme will provide innovative solutions including; running a National HPV Awareness Day; production of a CERVIVA infomercial which can be shown in clinic waiting rooms and on our website; developing a mobile website; hosting a series of public talks at town hall events around the country; and producing an annual CERVIVA newsletter. For more information on our research and education and outreach initiatives please see our website www.cerviva.ie.
