In a nutshell: Background: Human papillomaviruses (HPVs) cause genital warts and cancers in men. The natural history of HPV infection in men is largely unknown, and that information is needed to inform prevention strategies. The goal in this study was to estimate incidence and clearance of type-specific genital HPV infection in men, and to assess the associated factors. Interpretation: The data from this study are useful for the development of realistic cost-effectiveness models for male HPV vaccination internationally.
