Rwanda is the first country in Africa to introduce HPV vaccines nationwide thanks to a 3 year donation programme. In 2014, Rwanda will be the first country to introduce HPV vaccines into routine immunisation with GAVI support. The 3 dose vaccine are delivered in three rounds by community health workers to adolescent girls all over Rwanda mainly through schools.
