Human Papilloma Virus Prevention Week is designed to bring Canadians together to engage in a series of events and initiatives to increase awareness of an infection that is estimated to affect more than 75% of sexually active men and women in their lifetime. The human papilloma virus causes genital warts, but persistent disease can cause 6 different types of cancer: Oropharyngeal, Penile, Anal, Vaginal, Cervical, and Vulvar.
