Global statement released on behalf HPV vaccine victims

April 26, 2018, LONDON and DUBLIN. Press Dispensary. As reports of severe medical adverse events (AEs) associated with HPV vaccines continue to escalate worldwide, a group of scientists, medical professionals and victim group representatives from five nations, including the UK and Ireland, has today (at 14.00, UK and Ireland time) issued a ''Joint Statement 2018 for the Victims of HPV Vaccines''.
The statement, which may be downloaded here,
identifies for the first time how very different countries have parallel experiences of adverse events following HPV vaccinations. It also records the victims’ similar experiences at the hands of their various national health services.
The statement is the final conclusion of an international symposium held a month ago at the University of Tokyo and attended by representatives from the UK and Ireland, as well as Japan, Columbia and Spain.
Speaking for the UK’s AHVID (UK Association of HPV Vaccine Injured Daughters), vice chair Steve Hinks said:
''The statement is testament to the very high number of girls and boys around the world who are suffering the same, severe, long-term disabling side-effects because of this vaccine, despite there being no evidence yet that it will prevent a single case of cancer. The World Health Organisation’s global database reports more than 305,000 AEs for HPV vaccines(1), which is far higher than for any other vaccine. These cannot all be a coincidence.''
AHVID's scientific officer and UK delegate to the symposium(2) Mandeep Badial said:
''The Tokyo symposium identified the need for a worldwide collaboration between doctors and victim groups as, individually, they are being disregarded. The lives of young adults have been devastated and we have an obligation to come together to help improve their futures.''
The statement’s key findings note that the clinical features of AEs are ''common to victims in all the five participating countries and also very similar to those of victims in other countries'', and that another fact common to all countries is that the number of AEs reported for HPV vaccines, in each individual country, are ''overwhelmingly higher than AEs for other vaccines''.
However, the statement continues, national health authorities and medical professionals continue to deny any causal relationship between HPV vaccines and AEs, using a ''fundamentally flawed'' epidemiological argument not ''designed to detect the signals of HPV vaccine damage''. Because AEs are reported with long incubation periods, they ''are denied any connection with the vaccine, and the cases displaying diverse symptoms are diagnosed as separate known illnesses.''
Speaking for REGRET (Reactions and Effects of Gardasil Resulting in Extreme Trauma) and representing Ireland at the Tokyo symposium(3), Anna Cannon said:
''The Tokyo symposium and today’s statement highlight how the same neglect of the HPV vaccine victims is experienced in each country represented. It's time that we come together to find urgent resolutions for those affected: they cannot wait any longer''.
A new organisation, the International Federation for Injured Children and Adults (IFICA), also recently hosted an international symposium in Dublin, ''Working Together'', examining solutions for HPV vaccine injury through common endeavour, with doctors, lawyers and victim group representatives attending from the US, UK, Denmark and Spain, as well as Ireland.
Anna Cannon concluded:
''These two symposia, in quick succession, highlight the global nature of what has become an HPV vaccine emergency and underline an urgency for a worldwide resolution. The Tokyo statement is a watershed moment in a new international collaboration to fight the global devastation experienced by those adversely affected by the HPV vaccination.''
