The HPV vaccine, Gardasil, protects against four HPV types, which together cause 70% of cervical cancers and 90% of genital warts. Genital HPV infection is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that is caused by human papillomavirus (HPV). Human papillomavirus is the name of a group of viruses that includes more than 100 different strains or types. More than 30 of these viruses are sexually transmitted, and they can infect the genital area of both men and women.
