In the decade of vaccines (2011-2020), adolescent vaccination was an important focus area. This will become even more prominent in the newly developed Immunisation Agenda (IA)2030 because there are many public health benefits of targeting adolescents for vaccination. In addition, adolescent vaccination has the potential to open opportunities to integrate other health-related interventions such as deworming and vitamin supplementation.
In Low-and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs), adolescents are growing in numbers and focusing on promoting economic development and health. Adolescents are an important population group to target with a primary, booster, or catch up vaccination. In the decade of vaccines, as adolescents are difficult to reach through primary healthcare, a key driver of improving adolescents' health in LMICs is the vaccination against human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV vaccination is becoming the backbone of adolescent vaccination programs in LMICs.
The majority of LMICs lack established platforms or strategies to provide vaccination services to adolescents. As a result, HPV vaccination in these countries is often accompanied by overall adolescents' vaccination capacity strengthening activities. In this Research Topic, we aim to present studies focusing on various aspects of HPV vaccination capacity strengthening activities in LMICs. Also, studies focussing on general adolescents' vaccination capacity strengthening activities will be presented.
We welcome original research articles, systematic reviews, and narrative reviews discussing HPV adolescent vaccination in LMICs. The goal is to highlight advances in HPV vaccination in LMICs. Broader questions and issues related to adolescent vaccination in LMICs will also be included. Below are the key areas of interest for the Research Topic (but not limited to):
1) HPV vaccination workshops or conferences
2) Introduction of National HPV vaccination programs
3) HPV vaccination acceptability studies
4) Integration of HPV vaccination with other health-related interventions
5) Strategies to improve adolescent vaccination
6) Recommendations for adolescent vaccination

Keywords: Adolescents, vaccination, HPV vaccine, low- and middle-income countries, capacity strengthening
