Children are vaccinated daily in Sweden according to the national child vaccination programme. The goal of a good vaccination coverage according to the Public Health Agency of Sweden is at least 90%. In the school health services,  children are vaccinated against human papillom Virus (HPV), with a vaccination coverage of 81%, which is a lower compliance than desired. The purpose of the project is to study common beliefs and willingness in the society's child vaccination programme from different stakeholders perspective and to design and test an intervention aimed to increase the compliance with the child vaccination programme, focusing on HPV-vaccination.
