Paving Pathways: Brazil’s Implementation of a National Human Papillomavirus Immunization Campaign

This article, published in Revista Panamericana de Salud Pública, examines factors that may influence the long-term success of Brazil’s human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination program—sustaining effective outreach, managing a large technology-transfer collaboration, and developing an electronic immunization registry. The authors note that if these three factors are managed, Brazil could be a model of success for other countries interested in implementing a national HPV vaccination program.
