MURCIA-LORA, José María et al. NaProTechnology: Science and the Person in Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Infection among Women and Preadolescents. pers.bioét. [online]. 2017, vol.21, n.1, pp.23-45. ISSN 0123-3122.

There currently is sufficient scientific evidence directly linking acquisition, exposure and prevalence of the human papillomavirus (HPV) to cervical cancer. The article addresses HPV in women by taking NaProTechnology into account, which makes it possible to combine scientific evidence with ethical approaches. It looks at both the biological aspect of sexuality and the ability to become a person within one’s sexual nucleus. There is an analysis of sex education programs based on preventive health and on the anthropology of sexuality, and supported by family institutions, that have demonstrated better acceptance in dealing with the risk of sexually transmitted diseases, including HPV infection.

Keywords : NaProTecnology; human papilloma virus (HPV); vaccination; anthropology; sexuality; preadolescence.
