Implementing HPV Vaccination Programs:
Practical Experience from PATH

Implementing HPV Vaccination ProgramsFrom 2006 to 2011, PATH conducted demonstration projects in four low- and middle-income countries—India, Peru, Uganda, and Vietnam—to provide evidence for decision-making about public-sector introduction of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines. The Cervical Cancer Prevention: Practical Experience Series summarizes lessons learned from these projects that can help guide future HPV vaccination program planning, especially in low-resource settings around the globe. Additional units in this series will be available soon.

This unit, Implementing HPV Vaccination Programs, offers practical information to countries that plan to pilot, expand, or scale up HPV vaccination programs. While the unit includes resources (listed below and in the main document) on general immunization topics, the main focus is on issues specific to HPV vaccination, such as working with a young adolescent target population in school settings and developing community support for HPV vaccination programs.
