Vaccine HPV Supplement Features Journal Articles by JSI Staff

April 14th, 2022 | News


JSI staff wrote and co-authored several articles in the Vaccine supplement ​​Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccine Introduction in Low- and Lower-Middle Income Countries: Programmatic Successes and Challenges. The supplement was published with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Global Immunization Division.

Every year, cervical cancer kills more than 250,000 women, 85 percent of whom live in low- and middle-income countries. Since 2013, with funding from Gavi, we have provided technical assistance to introduce the HPV vaccine in eight countries. This includes preparation for the HPV vaccine grant application to Gavi, integration of the vaccination into country planning, multi-sector partner coordination and engagement (e.g., immunization, cancer prevention, education, adolescent health, civil society), and communication and social mobilization.
