Abstract
The lack of health knowledge among people may cause serious health problems. Cervical cancer, which kills hundreds of thousands of women around the world each year, is almost always caused by Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). Much is known about HPV that women could use to avoid infections, but widespread lack of transmission of HPV facts to women prevents them from taking the steps necessary to avoid infection. This paper theorizes about the problem of lack of transmission of HPV facts. Hence, "HPV Facts Transmission Model, Including Barriers and Resources Factors" has been identified. A "theory of the problem" [1] may assist in developing a "theory of the solution," in which to-be-developed IT artifacts could play an important role.
