WHAT IS HPV? - KINDAH FOUNDATION, INC.
HPV Epidemic: Nearly all cervical cancer is caused by Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Stigma is shame. Shame causes silence. Silence hurts us all. Florida has the nation’s 3rd highest cervical cancer incidence and mortality rates in the United States. Minority, low-income, and underinsured women and girls remain at exaggerated risk of being diagnosed with and dying from cervical cancer largely due to underutilization of routine screening and timely follow up for detected abnormalities. No female should die from preventable cancer.
