For Our Children (Por Nuestros Hijos)

For Our Children (Por Nuestros Hijos)is a theory-based program designed to educate Hispanic parents about the human papillomavirus (HPV), and motivate them to vaccinate their adolescent children (11 - 17 years). The program features bilingual (English/Spanish) resources, which health professionals can use to educate parents about HPV, and an innovative interactive application for healthcare providers, designed to increase the effectiveness of HPV-vaccine recommendation. This program was developed by the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston School of Public Health with funding from the Cancer Prevention & Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT).
