Patricee Douglas Developed an HPV Vaccine Awareness Campaign in Guyana
Patricee Douglas, a Women Deliver Young Leader from Guyana, developed an HPV vaccine awareness campaign to raise awareness that the vaccine is available free of charge in Guyana. This campaign showed the community that this vaccine that prevents HPV related cancers is available and it’s safe and effective. Since the implementation of this campaign, women in the community have begun to reach out to the team to ask where they can access this vaccine. As a result of the campaign’s success, Patricee plans to continue this campaign for the rest of the year in addition to providing information on screening cervical cancer, which can be caused by the HPV virus.
