HPV: Issues & Answers

Loading...
(Producer) According to the American Journal of Medicine, over 70% of Americans have been infected with a genital human papillomavirus, yet few are aware that they have it-or even know what HPV is. This eye-opening program delivers the facts that high school and college students-the primary victims-need to raise their awareness about an incurable sexually transmitted disease. Doctors, professors, peer educators, and others provide concise information on topics including HPV's link to genital warts and cervical cancer, the vital importance of pap smears, current treatments, and research being done to eliminate HPV once and for all.
