INTERNATIONAL HPV AWARENESS DAY – GIVE LOVE NOT HPV

International HPV Awareness Day is being launched by the International Papillomavirus Society on Sunday 4th March 2018.

HPV Action group, of which we are a member, is one of the partner organisations.  

Over 80% of people will be infected by HPV at some point in their life.  While some types of HPV may not have any symptoms and visible signs, there are a few that can harm us and our loved ones. The most harmful HPV types cause cervical, anal, oral, penile and other deadly cancers. The good news is that there are solutions. By increasing awareness and taking preventative measures, we can make the world a safer place for everyone.

The International Papillomavirus Society is launching International HPV Awareness Day as part of the organisation’s commitment to raising awareness of HPV and aims to promote progress on HPV prevention, screening and management of HPV related diseases.   For more information visit http://www.givelovenothpv.org/
