Why are girls from Black and Asian minority ethnic backgrounds less likely to receive the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine? Developing and testing a complex psychological intervention to increase informed uptake
Since 2008 the HPV vaccine to prevent cervical cancer has been offered to 12-13 year old girls. While uptake has been good, it has been lower among some ethnic minority groups. The aim of this project is to examine this disparity. Through this research we will develop and evaluate a theory- and evidence-informed complex intervention to increase uptake of the HPV vaccine among girls from Black and Asian minority ethnic backgrounds. The research comprises: - a thematic synthesis of vaccination decision making among parents of daughters from ethnic minority backgrounds; - an interview study to explore parents' decisions about HPV vaccination for their daughters; - the development of an intervention to increase informed uptake of HPV vaccination among girls from ethnic minority backgrounds; - a feasibility study of the intervention to inform the decision to conduct a future randomised controlled trial.
