Abstract

Human papilloma virus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the U.S.; most people will be infected during their lifetime. The most common HPV-related disease is cervical cancer with an estimated incidence of 12,000 cases annually, a third of which lead to death. Cervical cancer disparately affects women of ethnic minority groups and geographically isolated regions, such as Appalachia.
