HPV-induced oropharyngeal cancer is one of the fastest rising cancers in many countries. This new disease entity appears to have significantly better survival outcomes. However, important questions arise regarding its natural history, diagnosis, patient counselling and the best management regimens.

EUROGIN is an international research association organizing, at regular intervals, multidisciplinary congresses on HPV infection and related diseases. The congress has become a worldwide reference in this area.
