Global experience with HPV vaccine delivery and health service delivery to 9-13 year old girls has been limited, particularly in resource-poor settings. This meeting brought together immunization, adolescent health, cancer, and education programme specialists from a range of international agencies, NGOs, and academic institutions to review the current state of knowledge on delivering HPV vaccine, health services, and school health services to 9-13 year old girls. As a result of this review and from plenary and workshop discussions, short, medium, and long-term priorities for action related to HPV vaccine delivery were identified.
