Sociocultural Issues in the Introduction of Human Papillomavirus Vaccine in Low-Resource Settings

This article, published in Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, reports results of a study that aimed to better understand vaccine decision-making in low-resource settings in order to identify strategies for successful human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine introduction. The authors concluded that HPV vaccine introduction plans should address community concerns through effective communication, appropriate delivery, and targeted advocacy to make the program locally relevant.
