HPV Vaccination in a Cambodian Community

PI: C.V. (Vicky) Taylor, MD, MPH

The overall goal of this study is to conduct mixed-methods research that could be used to inform the development, implementation, and evaluation of culturally appropriate HPV vaccination interventions targeting Cambodian women with daughters in the 9–17 age group. Our primary objectives are to provide qualitative data relevant to the promotion of HPV vaccine use in Cambodian communities; and quantitative data about the uptake of HPV vaccination among Cambodian adolescents, as well as correlates of HPV vaccine uptake. Our secondary objective is to assess the test-retest reliability of survey measures addressing HPV vaccine uptake in a Cambodian study group.
