Evaluating HPV Vaccination Pilots: Practical Experience from PATH

Strategic planning and Situation AssessmentFrom 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, Evaluating HPV vaccination pilots provides methods and tools for designing and conducting an evaluation of an HPV vaccination pilot or demonstration project and gives practical examples of using the results to refine an HPV vaccine delivery strategy for national scale-up. Four principal sections cover the primary outcomes that should be evaluated in an HPV vaccination pilot or demonstration project: coverage, acceptability, feasibility, and cost. Each section includes a case study that provides examples of how this outcome was evaluated and a summary of how the results were used to shape HPV vaccine delivery strategies.
