HYPOTHESIS

The incidence of AGW in British Columbia will have decreased since the introduction of the publicly funded HPV vaccination program and the availability of the vaccine for adult women in the private market.

GOALS

We will use administrative data to report on trends in incidence of AGW from 1998 to 2016.

OBJECTIVES

To establish a baseline of the current rate of AGW by age, gender and anatomical area in the pre-vaccine and during vaccine-availability time period and healthcare utilization costs.
