The WHO Cervical Cancer Prevention and Control Costing (C4P) tool has been developed specifically to assist low- and middle-income countries in planning and costing cervical cancer control strategies. This course will familiarize you with the purpose and use of its human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination module (C4P-HPV).
Managers or mediators of the costing and planning of national programmes for HPV vaccination are encouraged to participate in this course and discuss practical issues of using this tool with colleagues from around the world. For this course, you will need to download the C4P-HPV tool (see below). Please contact VoVteam@who.int if you have any questions about the tool.
Overview: The course centres around the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination module of the costing tool (C4P-HPV) and refers to existing resources where necessary. The main aim of this course is to provide a step-by-step tutorial for the tool. Therefore, the focus of this course will be operational and pragmatic, only referring to the theory when necessary. This means a basic understanding of health economic principles is essential for this course.
By the end of this course, you will:
You may go through the ‘Standard terminology and principles for vaccine delivery costs’ if you are unfamiliar with vaccine delivery costing.
Central to this course is the C4P-HPV Tool: a Microsoft Excel file that helps you manage all cost estimates and assumptions for the National HPV Vaccination Programme.

However, the principles remain the same.
Course duration: Approximately 3 hours.
Certificates: A Certificate of Participation is provided to participants who complete at least 80% of the course material.
