Medical groups promoted HPV vaccine using drug company money

Washington Post, August 19, 2009

The groups—the American College Health Association, the American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology, and the Society of Gynecologic Oncologists—promoted Gardasil using virtually the same strategy that Merck employed in its marketing campaign for the vaccine, the analysis concluded.
