Project Description

This proposed translational research seeks to design and assess, in a randomized controlled trial, text message/automated phone reminders on timely human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination in Ugandan adolescents. This project, if successful, will outline an important foundation not only for other future trials for HPV vaccine reminders in Uganda, but also for the potential use of text message reminders for other childhood and adolescent vaccinations in Uganda, the larger Sub-Saharan African region, and in other low and middle- income countries (LMICs).
