The human papillomavirus (HPV) is a common infection that can lead to a number of cancers. Most people come into contact with HPV at some point in their lives, especially since is passed through skin-to-skin contact. HPV can cause cervical, throat, penile, anal, and vulvar cancers - diseases that American Indian and Alaska Native people are at higher risk for developing. Fortunately, HPV immunization can prevent 70-90% of the types of HPV that cause cancer. The vaccine, which is taken in a three-step series, is recommended for all children ages 11-12.
