In brief: Contraceptive Only
A diaphragm simply holds spermacid near your cervix so sperm are killed before they can enter your womb.
It does not protect the vagina from infections of any type however, including hpv.

In brief: Not protective
A diaphragm is a contraceptive device to help prevent pregnancy, not a means of preventing std transmission.
