Social Mobilisation, Consent and Acceptability: A Review of Human Papillomavirus Vaccination Procedures in Low and Middle-Income Countries

This article, published in BMC Public Health, reports on a study that synthesized experiences and lessons learned around social mobilization, consent, and acceptability during 55 human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine demonstration projects in 37 low- and middle-income countries. The authors found that starting social mobilization early, actively addressing rumors, and interactive communication with parents appeared to achieve higher first-dose coverage than non-interactive messaging. The lessons learned were consistent across world regions and HPV vaccination projects, and could be used to guide future HPV vaccination communication strategies.
