    Abstract

    HPV vaccine is effective in preventing Human papillomavirus, the main cause of cervical cancer. In Vietnam, at first, it was subsidized at $5░a dose and reached the coverage of 96% in 2 pilot provinces, indicating potentially high acceptance. Currently, it is provided at $120-195 for three doses. This is a cross-sectional study, conducted in two northern rural districts of Vietnam. Researchers present findings to show 53.1% of mothers stated their willingness to pay (WTP) for HPV vaccine for their daughters. Perceptions on cost and condom use were associated with WTP. Mothers' affordability ranged from under $23 to $46. Measures should be implemented soon to make HPV vaccine more affordable.
