  • Description: The objective of this study is to estimate the incremental delivery cost of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination of young adolescent girls in Peru, Uganda and Vietnam. Data were collected from a sample of facilities that participated in five demonstration projects for HPV vaccine delivery: school-based delivery was used in Peru, Uganda and Vietnam; health-centre-based delivery was also used in Viet Nam; and integrated delivery, which involved existing health services, was also used in Uganda. Microcosting methods were used to guide data collection on the use of resources and data were obtained from government, demonstration project and health centre administrative records. The economic delivery cost per vaccine dose ranged from $1.44 for integrated outreach in Uganda to $3.88 for school-based delivery in Peru. In Vietnam, the lowest cost per dose was $1.92 for health-centre-based delivery. The cost of delivering HPV vaccine to young adolescent girls in Peru, Uganda and Vietnam was higher than that for vaccines currently in the EPI schedule.
