A School-Based Human Papillomavirus Vaccination Program in Barretos, Brazil: Final Results of a Demonstrative Study

This article, published in PLoS ONE, reports on a study to evaluate the uptake and three-dose completion rates of a school-based human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination program in Brazil. The results showed high rates of vaccination uptake and completion of the three HPV vaccine doses. The authors conclude that the feasibility and success of an HPV vaccination program for adolescents in a developing country may depend on the integration between the public health and schooling systems.
