Performance of 21 HPV Vaccination Programs Implemented in Low and Middle-Income Countries, 2009–2013
This study, published in BMC Public Health, examined 21 human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination programs in 14 low- and middle- income countries. School and health clinic-based models appeared as predictive factors for vaccination coverage, as was management by an nongovernmental organization. The results suggest that HPV vaccination campaigns tailored to meet the needs of communities can be effective, and may be useful in the development of national HPV vaccination policies in low- and middle-income countries.
