Human papillomavirus (HPV) is responsible for more than 99% of cervical cancers. Most HPV infections are transient and are resolved by our immune system, however, persistent infections can cause cervical cancer in individuals with a cervix. Infection is extremely common and most sexually-active individuals (4 in 5) will be exposed to HPV by the age of 50. Vaccination and routine screening can prevent most HPV infections and cervical cancer cases thereby eliminating HPV-caused cervical cancers in the United States.
- Explain the history and evolution of cervical cancer screening
- Examine the HPV vaccination landscape and access to all populations
- Examine the impact of access to testing on the development of cervical cancer, with a focus on the COVID-19 pandemic
