HPV vaccine in India has again gained news. This time, questions have been raised over the violation of ethics. A study is being carried out over the need of introducing HPV vaccination in India. The researchers of University of London and University of Edinburgh have suggested that the HPV incidences in India are quite low as compared to countries like Brazil.
However, the Indian scientists are of the view that the country in under the huge burden of cervical cancer and therefore the introduction of the treatment is must. But, according to the researchers of University of London and University of Edinburgh, the registration and monitoring of cervical cancer patients is defected.
A community of scientists called PATH's has been asked by the Indian Government to carry out a trial over cervical cancer in the country. The PATH's has pointed out that the introduction of the HPV vaccine in necessary. However, a researcher, Professor Pollock said, "We found that current data on cervical cancer incidence do not support PATH's claim that India has a large burden of cervical cancer or its decision to roll out the vaccine programme". Professor Pollock further said that the country needs to pay attention to other health problems like malnutrition and maternal anemia.
