A research in Vietnam shows that 10.6% women in Ho Chi Minh city and 2.3% women in Hanoi have one or more type of 30 types of HPV. Another research on sex workers in a Southern province shows that 85% participants have HPV.

The health burden of HPV, which is largely associated with cervical cancer and genital warts, is clearly reflected in many documents. However, very few mentions about the impacts outside the health aspect of diseases associated with HPV, such as psychological, economical and social aspects, especially in developing countries like Vietnam.

In order to address this issue, Agence de Médecine Préventive implements an anthropological research on the impacts of cervical cancer and genital warts in developing countries. The research will be conducted in Vietnam and Kenya. SCDI is responsible for the work in Vietnam
