    3. 3. What is HPV? • Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common viral infection of the reproductive tract. Most sexually active women and men will be infected at some point in their lives and some may be repeatedly infected. • HPV stands for human papillomavirus. Go Back
    4. 4. Prevalence of HPV • Vaccines • Girls and women: Two vaccines (Cervarix and Gardasil) • Boys and men: One vaccine (Gardasil) • The vaccine is also recommended for gay and bisexual men • Because HPV can cause serious problems such as genital warts and some kinds of cancer, a vaccine is an important step in preventing infection and protecting against the spread of HPV. Go Back
    5. 5. Signs and symptoms of HPV • Genital warts in men and women • cause warts in the throat • cause normal cells in the body to turn abnormal • might lead to cancer over time • syncope (fainting) • dizziness • nausea • headache • fever • urticarial (hives) Go back
    6. 6. Importance of vaccinations • One of greatest public health achievements in the world • Vaccines are the most effective intervention in reducing and preventing the return of infectious disease • Prevents from getting Cervical Cancer, genital warts Go Back
    7. 7. Why are HPV vaccines needed? • To prevent cervical cancer • To protect against cancer • It protects kids, men-women and seniors from unknown diseases • Protects from Genital warts Go Back
    8. 8. Link between Cancer and HPV • High-risk HPV infection accounts for approximately 5 percent of all cancers worldwide. However, most high-risk HPV infections occur without any symptoms, go away within 1 to 2 years, and do not cause cancer. • Some HPV infections, however, can persist for many years. Persistent infections with high-risk HPV types can lead to more serious cytological abnormalities or lesions that, if untreated, may progress to cancer. Go Back
    9. 9. How does the HPV vaccine work? • The HPV vaccine is given as three injections over a 6- month period. The vaccine does not protect people who have been infected with HPV before they've been vaccinated. That's why getting the vaccine before having sex for the first time is the most effective way for it to help prevent the infection. Go Back
    10. 10. Vaccine target populations • There are currently over 20 million people affected by the virus, with 6.2 million new infections diagnosed each year. Although most infections are cleared by the immune system, in some cases HPV can cause cervical cancer. • Infections occur soon after onset of sexual activity, with as many as 50% of women infected. Go back
    11. 11. Opposing Viewpoints of HPV vaccine • Although this vaccine helps prevent Cervical Cancer and against genital warts, I think that this vaccine is EXPENSIVE($130 per does ($390 for full series)) • This vaccine gives you headaches, fever, nausea, painful arms, hands, legs or feet, may fell dizzy and might do vomit • There are people died because of taking HPV vaccine • The vaccines do not protect against all HPV types— so they will not prevent all cases of cervical cancer.
