The European AIDS Clinical Society has recommended HPV vaccination for everyone living with HIV aged under 26 and all men who have sex with men up to the age of 40.

HPV (human papillomavirus) is a sexually transmitted virus that causes genital warts, and in some forms, leads to the development of cervical, anal and oropharyngeal cancers. Anal cancer, rare in the general population, is becoming more common in people living with HIV, especially men who have sex with men.
