Antimalarial medicines are the only effective way to prevent
malaria infection. But some malaria parasites have
become resistant to certain medicines in certain areas of the world.1 The most accurate information about malaria medicine resistance in specific countries is available from the U.S. Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (www.cdc.gov/malaria) and the World Health Organization
The malaria medicine used to
treat the infection depends in part on the location where a person gets malaria
and the type of malaria parasite causing the infection.
Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the virus that causes cervical cancer in women and genital warts in men and women. The HPV vaccine effectively prevents infection with the two HPV types responsible for most cervical cancers and can also prevent genital warts. HPV vaccination is most effective during childhood or adolescence, but adults can also benefit from the HPV vaccine.
