Acceptability of HPV Vaccine Among Young Adolescent Girls in Uganda: Young People’s Perspectives Count

This article, published in the International Journal of Child and Adolescent Health, presents the perspectives of girls aged 10 to 15 years on the acceptability of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine. The authors found that the adolescent girls demonstrated an independent ability in deciding to be vaccinated or not, and adequate preparation was critical in helping them to make informed decisions. They concluded that adequate preparation can foster acceptance of HPV vaccine among girls and eventually influence the success of a national HPV vaccination program. ABSTRACT ONLY. (Learn how users in developing countries can gain free access to journal articles.)
