On International Women’s Day, It’s Your Life (a campaign organised by the National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM) and Merck Sharp & Dohme (MSD) Malaysia) launched a new video series that sheds light on the human papillomavirus and the steps that can be taken to prevent it.

It features Professor Dr Woo Yin Ling (Consultant Gynaecological Oncologist, University Malaya Medical Centre) and Dato’ Dr Saunthari Somasundaram (President and Medical Advisor, NCSM) – two charismatic women who champion women’s health issues. These experts share their insights on the viral infection and will continue to explain more in upcoming episodes, including the HPV vaccine and common misconceptions. 

Here’s what we learned about HPV from the first episode:
