Barriers to prevention: knowledge of HPV, cervical cancer, and HPV vaccinations among African American women.
The overall goal of this study was to explore targetable barriers to HPV vaccination among African American women in an urban Chicago population. Most middle-aged African American women demonstrated low knowledge scores regarding HPV, cervical cancer, and the HPV vaccine. Education level, household income and having a child who had been offered the HPV vaccine were associated positively with adequate knowledge scores.
