I. Introduction: Genital human papillomavirus (HPV) is estimated to have the highest incidence of any sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the United States (U.S.), and high-risk genital HPV types are known to act as carcinogens in the development of cervical cancers. In early 2001, Congress mandated that the Secretary of Health and Human Services prepare and distribute educational materials for healthcare providers and the public that include information on HPV. Such materials are to address the following: a) modes of transmission; b) consequences of infection, including the link between HPV and cervical cancer; c) the available scientific evidence on the effectiveness of condoms in preventing infection with HPV; and d) the importance of regular Pap smears, and other diagnostics for early intervention and prevention of cervical cancer. In response to this mandate, CDC’s Division of Sexually Transmitted Disease Prevention (DSTDP) initiated development of a health communication intervention to achieve the goals of the mandate. To inform their communications efforts, DSTDP first conducted qualitative research with the general public as well as qualitative and quantitative research with patients and providers. DSTDP then tasked Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide (Ogilvy PR) with the development and testing of messages and materials to raise genital HPV awareness and education among key general public, healthcare provider, and patient audiences.
