Qualitative Study of the Feasibility of HPV Vaccine Delivery to Young Adolescent Girls in Vietnam: Evidence From a Government-Implemented Demonstration Program

This article, published in BMC Public Health, evaluates a government-implemented school and health center-based human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination program for all girls in grade 6, or 11 years of age, in four districts in Vietnam. The study examined the impact of incorporating HPV vaccine on the five levels of the health and education system in Vietnam—national, regional, provincial, district, and commune—in order to assess the feasibility of HPV vaccine delivery in low-income countries. The authors conclude that the experience in Vietnam identified critical elements for successful vaccine delivery that can provide a model for other countries to consider during their planning of national rollouts of HPV vaccine.
