Human Papillomavirus Vaccine Delivery Strategies That Achieved High Coverage in Low- and Middle-Income Countries

This article, published in the Bulletin of the World Health Organization, documents human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination coverage after the demonstration projects conducted in India, Peru, Uganda, and Vietnam by PATH and national governments. The authors conclude that high coverage with HPV vaccine among young adolescent girls was achieved through various delivery strategies in the developing countries studied. The reasons for vaccine acceptance or refusal are addressed in the article, and the authors assert that reinforcing positive motivators for vaccine acceptance is likely to facilitate uptake.
