Mission & vision

Our mission

The human papillomavirus (HPV). Not everyone knows what this is, but 80 to 90% of people can get infected.1 Girls, boys, women, and men. The consequences can be big, but you can reduce the risk of infection.2 It starts with knowing what is going on.

The platform samentegenhpv.nl is an initiative of MSD Nederland to raise awareness about HPV and vaccination. We make this possible by providing you information about HPV, its consequences and how to protect against it. We also collaborate with influencers, patient organizations and healthcare professionals.


Our Vision

The risk of disease caused by HPV can be reduced.3 That is why we strive to eliminate HPV-related diseases, such as cancer and genital warts, in the Netherlands.2 This is possible with vaccination, condom use and screening.
