Prof Clare Wilkinson - Cardiff University, UK

It is known that human papillomavirus (HPV) is a causal factor for cervical cancer, but less well known that the virus also causes oropharyngeal, anal, vulvar, vaginal and penile cancers, making it the second biggest contributory factor for cancers. Cancer Research UK has funded Prof Wilkinson’s group to deliver a HPV core messages project. This project aims to educate women taking a cervical smear test and girls being vaccinating of the dangers of this virus in an honest way without causing undue levels of anxiety.
