Vaccination anti-HPV pour les jeunes garçons en France : quels sont les arguments favorables et défavorables à une extension de la vaccination HPV pour les hommes ? Quelles sont les perspectives d’avenir en France ?

Abstract : Objective of the study: To identify and analyse the different points of view that fuel the controversy over a HPV vaccination routinely offered to men. Materials and Methodology: This study was conducted according to the methodology of a controversy analysis. This research allowed the identification of 53 documents written by 60 authors and classified in two tables gathering the arguments in favour or against the extension of HPV vaccination to young boys in France. The selected documents date from 2008 to January 2020. Results: The favourable argument is essentially based on the need to protect men from male HPV cancers, while creating indirect protection for women in order to eradicate the virus from our population. The opponents, on the other hand, mainly put forward the financial aspect : a double vaccination would be too expensive for too rare male pathologies. Conclusion: The study shed light upon the profound divergence of the protagonists' points of view on the medical, financial, safety and ethical aspects of the controversy, but also the ambivalence of this controversy, with several authors not clearly positioning themselves in one of the two camps. Although the aim of the study is not to find a solution to the controversy, it should be noted that the HAS has declared itself in favour of this change in vaccination regimen in December 2019.
