Barriers and Facilitators to HPV Vaccination of Young Women in High-Income Countries: A Qualitative Systematic Review and Evidence Synthesis

This study, published in BMC Public Health, examined decision-making relating to the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination of young women in high-income countries. It found that decisions were shaped by financial considerations, social norms and values relating to sexual activity, and trust in vaccination programs and health care providers. The authors conclude that interventions to address barriers to uptake of the vaccine should target appropriate, and multiple, levels of the socio-ecological model, and issues of trust require clear, accessible, and sometimes culturally appropriate, information about the HPV vaccination program.
