Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection affects 70–80 percent of females throughout their lives, putting them at risk for genital warts and cervical cancer. Despite these associated hazards and the vaccine’s established effectiveness, coverage rates for two-three doses in Italy are about 70% and 67 percent in Piemonte. The study’s goal is to determine if this scenario is the result of a lack of knowledge and awareness among young adults. Following the intervention, students demonstrated improved knowledge, and more than 90% regarded the three informative items to be valuable sources of information. Students highly recommended HPV immunisation following the intervention. The value of information transmission is highlighted by higher percentages of accurate replies following the release of useful content. There were differences in the types of material reported; it appears that a combination of leaflet positive features, such as clarity and intelligibility, and article completeness of information represents the best solution to achieve communication goals in vaccination campaigns aimed at educated populations. An experimental research was done on a large group of undergraduate students from the University of Turin.
Participants’ awareness of HPV was examined using questionnaires before and after seeing three distinct types of educational material on HPV and vaccination. Univariate tests were used to investigate differences between groups, while McNemar tests were used to examine differences in pre- and post-knowledge.
