This qualitative research examines parental knowledge about cervical cancer and parents views about the preventative HPV vaccine in two municipalities. Conducted as part of her Masters of International Public Health, Dr Corte-Real de Oliveira’s findings highlight the need to raise awareness and knowledge via health promotion campaigns of the vaccine’s benefits so that parents and their daughter’s can make an informed choice about whether to be vaccinated.
