About

The aim of this study is to assess knowledge, beliefs and attitudes of parents to young girls aged 9 to 14 years about HPV vaccines within some rural communities in the North West Region of Cameroon served by three hospitals in that area. To do this, we will conduct in-depth qualitative interviews with purposively sampled parents of girls aged 9 to 14 years, some of whom received HPV vaccine and some of whom did not. Interviews will continue until thematic saturation is reached (We anticipate a total 40 interviews). Data analysis will be done concurrently with interviews using thematic analysis.
