Project: Human Papillomavirus Vaccination in Brazil: Perceptions and Implementation
Staff: This project was conducted by a 2014 GHI team: Misha Baker, Ellen Chiang and Daniella Figueroa-Downing
The goal of this project was to conduct baseline data collection on the implementation and acceptability of Brazil’s national HPV vaccination campaign at 5 basic health units in metropolitan São Paulo from May-August 2014. The objective was to investigate provider perceptions and the socio-cultural contexts that influence HPV vaccine acceptability among parents with adolescents in the target age range. Our team used a mixed-methods approach by developing a qualitative interview instrument to assess parental perceptions and a quantitative survey to examine provider attitudes.
Additionally, we were able to conduct interviews with government stakeholders about the process of implementing the national HPV vaccination program and which resulted in a manuscript that has been submitted for review.
Three members of the Global Health Institute (GHI) team are using the data collected on the HPV vaccine acceptability for bachelor’s and master’s theses. The team also plans to submit their findings for publication in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Our GHI team consisted of two master of public health students, a nursing student and a student from Emory College. GHI funding supported travel to São Paulo, Brazil.
