In Egypt, women and doctors are challenging centuries-old taboos about the dangers of HPV. The Human Papillomavirus is a common virus that is spread through sexual contact and can lead to cervical cancer. Unfortunately, in Egypt, women are often scared to talk about the disease which isolates them from getting the medical help they need. In an effort to combat this problem, doctors are beginning to offer more information to women about the virus and how to protect themselves. They are also encouraging women to seek help with any issues related to HPV. Additionally, health organizations are working to make the public more aware of the risks associated with HPV and the available treatments.
