A silent virus that has the capacity to become deadly will infect many women around the globe, making developing countries the most vulnerable. HPV is the most common sexually transmitted disease worldwide. Many of us will get infected with HPV in some points of our lives but developing countries will be the ones in which more lives will be lost due to the lack of education and access to the vaccine. This virus can lead to health problems that can be easily treated but it can also become fatal.
