Abstract [sv]

Humant papillomvirus (HPV) är en av de vanligaste sexuellt överförbara in­fektionerna. HPV kan leda till cellförändringar och cervixcancer hos kvin­nor men viruset är även en av orsakerna till anal-, huvud- och halscancer. Flera problemområden har identifierats i samband med att vaccination mot HPV infördes i barnvaccinationsprogrammet. Ett problem är svårigheten att uppnå informerat samtycke till HPV-vaccination. Ur ett jämlikhetsperspektiv är det ett problem att endast flickor erbjuds HPV-vaccinering i barnvaccina­tionsprogrammet. Genom att endast vaccinera flickor stigmatiseras bilden av flickor som smittbärare. Pojkar har inte tillgång till kostnadsfri vaccine­ring trots att de är smittbärare av HPV och kan drabbas cancer. Genom att utesluta pojkar från allmänna vaccinationsprogram så diskrimineras sårbara grupper som t.ex. män som har sex med män.

Abstract [en]

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is one of the world´s most common sexually transmitted infections. HPV can cause cell changes and cervical cancer in women, but the virus is also one of the causes of anal, head and neck cancer. Several problem areas have been identified in connection with the introduc­tion of the HPV vaccination in the childhood immunisation programme. One problem is the difficulty to obtain informed consent for HPV vaccination. From a gender perspective, it is a problem that only girls are offered the HPV vac­cination in the childhood vaccination programme. By only vaccinating girls, the image of girls being carriers is stigmatised. Boys do not have access to free vaccinations, although they are carriers of HPV and may get cancer. By excluding boys from the general vaccination programme, vulnerable groups are discriminated against, for example, men who have sex with men.
