Abstract: Presents results of qualitative study to describe Alaska Native parents' knowledge of and attitudes towards cervical cancer, human papillomavirus (HPV) and HPV vaccine. Study is composed of 11 focus groups held in one small village, two towns and one large urban centre in Alaska. Finds that most parents, although they have heard about HPV, are unaware of link with cervical cancer; also that majority want to vaccinate daughters because they have health and safety concerns, believe that vaccines work, have personal experience of cancer, or believe that their daughters are susceptible to HPV.
