Enise Çayci awarded with Mosaic grant.

Enise Çayci (ESHPM) will start her PhD research with a Mosaic 2.0 grant for ‘Applying a Gender Perspective to Ethnic Differences in HPV Vaccination Uptake in the Netherlands (GETVACCINL)’. The PhD scholarship programme is aimed at the underrepresented group of graduates with a migration background in the Netherlands. 

The importance of Çayci's research 

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a sexually transmitted virus that can lead to cancer in both women and men. Vaccines can effectively prevent HPV-related cancers, but in the Netherlands, HPV-vaccination rates are low among people of Turkish and Moroccan origin. The reasons for this are not well-understood yet, which hampers developing campaigns to address ethnic health disparities. Drawing on primary data, this project provides insights into the drivers of ethnic disparities in HPV-vaccination, thereby recognizing that these drivers may be gendered. Moreover, it provides an initial evidence base for tailored, gender-specific communication strategies for campaigns aiming to reduce ethnic HPV-vaccination disparities.
