Age-specific prevalence of high-risk human papillomavirus infection among women in rural China, 2016-2018.

2screening for anal HPV infection is barely performed in South-East Asia due to cost and availability of testing. Even though hrHPV detection is not relevant for screening of anal lesions, epidemiology of anal HPV infection is necessary to help, support and assess the implementation of HPV-vaccination programs, especially in highly exposed populations and in low and middle-income countries. In this study, we investigated the prevalence of anal (hr)HPV among asymptomatic MSM and TGW community in Phnom Penh and identified risk factors associated with (hr)HPV infection.
