For #SexualHealthWeek we'll be sharing items from our collection that relate to the issues and ideas around sexual health. Here's one from our digital exhibit: A necklace made of genital warts. You can also see this jar in the Worden gallery in our museum. Caused by the Human Papilloma Virus, it's the most common sexually transmitted disease in the world.

The HPV vaccine, only available since 2006, is on the WHO's list of essential medicines. This vaccine can prevent infection and thereby prevent many cancers. You can get a closer look at this specimen at memento.muttermuseum.org, where you can zoom in and virtually rotate the jar.
