Élargissement de la vaccination anti-papillomavirus aux garҫons : acceptabilité par la population masculine et par les médecins libéraux

Abstract : Introduction: the papillomavirus vaccination program implemented in France has not improved the immunization coverage of girls. Universal vaccination could have a positive impact on the previous point, and moreover reduce the incidence of anogenital and oropharyngeal pre-cancers and cancers. We estimated its acceptability among males and doctors. Methods: the study is divided into two parts. The first is a descriptive, cross-sectional study carried out among boys and young men aged between 12 and 26, who answered questionnaires which were distributed in healthcare structures. The second is a qualitative study conducted with doctors through semi-structured telephone interviews. Results: 44 patients completed the questionnaire. More than 80% accepted the idea of male vaccination. The predominant argument in favor of vaccination was to limit transmission, and the negative was the lack of information. 11 interviews were carried out with doctors. 9 of them were in favor to vaccinate boys and two were reluctant. The major obstacles were ignorance of the subject, difficulty to approach sexuality in consultation, and lack of perspective. Conclusion: the acceptability of HPV vaccination seems good, but improving vaccination coverage requires an effort informing the population, better training of health professionals, and sexuality education. Having good results abroad, school vaccination appears to be beneficial.
