Summary

This project will establish best practices for the distribution of the HPV vaccine in Mali.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

HPV causes cervical cancer, the most common and fatal cancer among Malian women. However, HPV, and thereby cervical cancer, can be prevented by the HPV vaccine.

How will this project solve this problem?

Right now in Mali lie 33,000 doses of the HPV vaccine, unable to be distributed as military funding has become the country's financial focus. GAIA VF is setting up a vaccination campaign to vaccinate 11,000 teenagers in the region of Bamako.

Potential Long Term Impact

Our project will lead to the distribution of the HPV vaccine, which will over time reduce the rates of mortality from cervical cancer by reducing HPV infection rates.
