Chapter 25: Education, Training, and Communication for HPV Vaccines

The authors of this article, which is a chapter in a monograph published in Vaccine, purport that as HPV vaccines come to market, they will face education and training challenges similar to those of other new vaccines, along with HPV-specific issues. The authors argue that pharmaceutical companies, public health advocates, medical trainers, and health educators need to understand their diverse audiences and respond appropriately to the needs of each. They also suggest that they must use research-based communication strategies to convey the need for an HPV vaccine and to manage expectations about how the vaccine can, and cannot, protect women and men.
