Re: Human papillomavirus vaccine initiation in Asian Indians and Asian subpopulations: a case for examining disaggregated data in public health research

Abstract

The recently published article by Budhwani and De [1] entitled ‘Human papillomavirus vaccine initiation in Asian Indians and Asian subpopulations: a case for examining disaggregated data in public health research’ is of interest given the dearth of publications that have examined human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination outcomes among Asian-American subpopulations due to small sample sizes in many data sources. In their report, the authors conclude that Asian Indians had lower HPV vaccine initiation rates than other Asian subgroups and, therefore, recommend that future large-scale studies should disaggregate racial/ethnic groups.
