Advanced Society or Degenerate?

Every schoolgirl in the UK is set to be vaccinated against a sexually-transmitted virus which causes cervical cancer. Following successful trials of the vaccine on women in Glasgow, health chiefs are about to authorize nationwide jabs for girls as young as nine.

There is widespread medical support for a mass vaccination program to control human papillomavirus (HPV), which is blamed for causing up to 70% of cervical cancer cases.

I can appreciate addressing a public health problem but how much is being spent to address the causative behavior?
