AQUINO ROJAS, Evelin; AQUINO ROJAS, Wilmer Allen; SOTO FLORES, Ruth  and  SOTO FLORES, Olivia. Tactics of strengthening for the prevention of uterine cervical cancer through the vaccination against the virus of the human papiloma, august 2017 to march 2018. Gac Med Bol [online]. 2019, vol.42, n.1, pp.52-58. ISSN 1012-2966.

Human papilloma virus infection is considered one of the main causes of neoplasms and pre-malignant lesions associated with infectious processes; they represent a public health problem and we have the compromising need to reduce the morbidity and mortality caused by the virus through immunization. Objectives: To analyze the strengthening tactics to prevent the predisposing factors to the deficit of coverage for the prevention of the Cervical Uterine Cancer.  Methods: This study was conducted from August 2017 to March 2018 in a sample of 634 students between the ages of 10 and 12 in the city of Santa Cruz, interviewing 574 parents. The type of study is non-probabilistic; Stratified random transverse non - experimental analysis with a qualitative quantitative variable of ordinal scale. Results: More than 80% of parents rejected the vaccine related to multiple factors (ignorance, distrust of the vaccine, myths, fear, others) Parents who oppose immunization against uterine cervical cancer have 4 times more risk of their daughters developing the disease at some stage of their life (RR 4.2, CI: .2.1 - 8.2, X2 23.3, p: 0.00000048). Conclusions: For this reason tactics were used, of which 4 gave more results for parents to access vaccination. We managed to vaccinate the second dose to the target population of our research.
