Objective: To detect the prevalence of human papillomavirus infection (HPV) among female prisoners in the Kemerovo Region (Siberia).

Design and methods: It was population-based study. This study included seventy five female prisoners aged from 25 to 65 years (average age was 37,8 ± 8,3). We used clinical methods, self-sampling device for HPV testing (Qvintip®) with instruction and physician-collected cervical specimens for HPV testing (Physician-HPV testing).  The material was sent to the laboratory and then analyzed for the presence of high-risk HPV types by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of HPV DNA.
Results: The results of our study showed that 37,3% (28/75) of these women were high-risk HPV positive. We found out positive HPV in 25 (89,2%) women with self - HPV testing and in 21 (75,0%) women physician-HPV testing. Self-sampling and physician-collected cervical smears demonstrated the comparable accuracy for detection of high-risk HPV DNA.

The number of prisoners infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was 29, 3% (22/75). Among this group 72, 7 % of women (16/22) were positive for high-risk HPV, negative results - 27, 3% (6/22).

Overall only 42, 8 % of women with positive HPV (12/28) were negative for HIV infection.

The prevalence of HPV was higher in women of reproductive age (less than 45 years) (25/28). The most common risk factors among HPV positive women were: smoking (100%), drug addiction (60,7%), HIV infection (57,1%), alcohol addiction (39,3%), first sexual intercourse under 16 years – 53,6%. Average lifetime number of sex partners was 4, 1 ± 3, 5. All of the women had no information about their infection with HPV and the possibility of vaccination.
Conclusions: The prevalence of HPV infection among female prisoners is high. Female prisoners are in the risk group of HPV infection because of sexual behavior, their addictions (smoking, drugs, alcohol etc.) and HIV infection.
