Women's Health Education Program
Drexel University College of Medicine's Women's Health Education Program (WHEP), part of the Department of Medicine, is one of six original National Centers of Excellence in Women's Health awarded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women's Health. WHEP is committed to advocating for women's health issues in medicine. Our efforts are directed toward long- and short-term change, with the hope that the future physicians we train will view women's health as a fundamental element of medical care that is more than reproductive health.

Exploring Cultural Barriers to HPV Vaccination in South Asian American Women
Attitudes regarding HPV vaccination vary globally and cross-culturally. Among South Asian American females, low rates of HPV vaccination may directly be influenced by cultural and religious expectations due to the vaccine’s misconceived association with sexual activity. The South Asian American population’s cultural beliefs include abstinence from premarital sexual behavior and a monogamous sexual relationship upon marriage.
