Implementing Action Guides and Resources

These action guides and resources were created with specific country focus. Use them as a starting point for your efforts to optimise the interaction between key healthcare professionals and parents/guardians. Prior to implementing any efforts for increasing the uptake of, and demand for, the HPV vaccine consider:

  • Identifying the behavioural barriers faced by targeted healthcare professionals and/or parents/guardians in your community, country, or region
  • Understanding the policy and social environments in your community, country, or region
  • Engaging trusted partners, healthcare providers, and/or parents/guardians when identifying solutions
  • Testing adapted solutions in small ways before scaling, so you know what works in your community
  • Tracking progress, making improvements, and sharing success with partners throughout the project
