Jivika Healthcare’s HPV Awareness Drive in Pune’s Colleges
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections in the world, with a significant impact on public health. Jivika Healthcare, a leading social enterprise in Pune, Maharashtra, has taken a proactive stance in spreading awareness about HPV through a dedicated awareness drive in colleges across the city.
Understanding HPV and Its Impact
HPV is a group of viruses that can infect the genital area, mouth, and throat. It is primarily transmitted through sexual contact, but it can also be spread through non-sexual means. HPV is categorized into low-risk and high-risk types. Low-risk types can cause genital warts, while high-risk types can lead to various cancers, including cervical, penile, and oropharyngeal cancer. HPV is incredibly common, and most sexually active individuals will encounter it at some point in their lives. However, awareness and preventive measures can significantly reduce the risks associated with HPV.
Jivika Healthcare’s Awareness Drive
We at Jivika Healthcare have taken the initiative to inform the youth of Pune about the importance of HPV awareness and prevention. Our awareness drive in colleges encompasses following key components:
- Educational Workshops: Jivika Healthcare conducts informative workshops at numerous colleges in Pune. These workshops cover various aspects of HPV, including its transmission, prevention, and the importance of early detection & Vaccination. They provide students with accurate information and dispel common myths surrounding HPV.
- Vaccination Camps: The organization collaborates with colleges to set up HPV vaccination camps. These camps offer a convenient and accessible way for students to get vaccinated, reducing the risk of HPV-related health issues.
- Promoting Open Dialogues: By addressing the stigma associated with HPV and promoting healthy dialogue, Jivika Healthcare aims to create an environment where students feel comfortable discussing essential topics.
Jivika Healthcare’s dedicated HPV awareness drive in Pune’s colleges is a dedicated effort to educate and protect the youth of the city. By providing accurate information, access to vaccination, and screening opportunities, they are taking significant steps toward reducing the impact of HPV on the community.
