Why should I care about HPV?

Genital warts and cancer – need we say more? If you haven't heard that certain cancers and diseases are caused by some types of HPV, it’s time you did. For most, HPV (or human papillomavirus) clears on its own. But for others who don't clear the virus, it can cause potentially serious diseases.

Who’s at risk?

How does GARDASIL®9 work?
