Conducting Formative Research for HPV Vaccination Program Planning: Practical Experience from PATH
From 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, Conducting Formative Research for HPV Vaccination, demonstrates that preliminary formative research is a necessary component of overall planning, discusses formative research issues specific to cervical cancer, and explains how research results may be used for strategic planning within the cervical cancer context.
