From May 2017 through July 2020, JSI supported the Tanzania Immunization and Vaccine Development (IVD) unit with comprehensive planning and national rollout and monitoring of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination, including its use as part of the country’s routine immunization system. Community buy-in for HPV immunization has been essential for uptake.
