Feasibility of Delivering HPV Vaccine to Girls Aged 10 to 15 Years in Uganda

This article, published in African Health Sciences, reports on a study that explored the feasibility of two human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine delivery strategies in Uganda—a stand-alone, school-based strategy that selected girls based on their enrollment in grade 5 and an age-based strategy that delivered the HPV vaccine based on the girls’ age. The results showed that grade eligibility is more feasible than age selection for HPV vaccine delivery because more girls were vaccinated using this approach and it was the preferred strategy for health workers and teachers.
