HPVs are human papillomaviruses. They are very present in men and women and are responsible for infection of the genitals. 1/3 of HPV-induced cancers affect men. Moreover, the boss of PUBLICIS, Arthur Sadoun, very recently made public his fight against HPV-related cancer, and we salute him for this act. Taboos around cancer are tenacious, and even more so when it affects cancer at work.
