Cervical cancer research – Prof Anna-Lise Williamson

The booklet Tracking the Cervical Cancer Virus in South African Men and Women features the research conducted by Professor Anna-Lise Williamson. HIV co-infection with HPV is a significant problem in South Africa. Women with HIV are more likely to be infected with multiple HPV types, are more likely to share HPV with their partners, and are more likely to transmit the virus to their partners. As more women receive anti-retroviral therapy the problem of cervical disease in HIV-positive women is going to have a significant impact on the health care system. The high prevalence of HPV in men was confirmation of the importance of formulating strategies to deal with HPV in both men and women.
