Abstract

We assessed awareness of human papillomavirus (HPV) in a population sample of British women (n=1620) using similar questions to those in a survey in 2002. Only 2.5% cited HPV as the cause of cervical cancer without prompting; up from 0.9% in 2002. Public education about HPV is urgently needed.
