Policy Development for Human Papillomavirus Vaccine Introduction in Low-Resource Settings

This analysis, published in The Open Vaccine Journal, describes the policy environment related to human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine introduction, identifies the policy processes and key stakeholders in HPV vaccine introduction, summarizes specific characteristics about HPV vaccines and their introduction that may be barriers to introduction, and recommends advocacy strategies to achieve a positive environment for cervical cancer prevention. This descriptive qualitative study of HPV vaccine policy development used an iterative, inductive, theme-based approach to data analysis and was conducted in four countries: India, Peru, Uganda, and Vietnam.
