About 10 years ago, UK Health Dept produced a White Paper (research of statistics of a certain subject) showing that STDs in UK (especially untreated Chlamydia) was endemic. I am sure HPV infection was high up there coz there was large Cervical cancer uptick. Hence the not so useful HPV vaccine compulsory for 12 yo girls and above.
There was obviously no public report, though, hush, hush they were keeping the General Practitioners informed. I noticed there was also the occasional radio advertisement encouraging abstinence, but this did not last more than a month. I do not know if a lobby group shut them down. For abstinence would cause a huge loss of profit for Big Pharma.
