Herpes Viruses Association

This patient support charity has been working to end the stigma of genital herpes (cold sores on the genitals) and supports the people who are diagnosed, providing information to allow them to resume a normal sexual life.

What they offer:

  • Resources: website with video clips, helpline, subscription leaflets and journal
  • Zoom sessions for patients’ interaction with a herpes expert and other people living with herpes.
  • Training for professionals in sexual health clinics/GP surgeries

Education is the solution to stigma. If health professionals know how to explain genital herpes in a patient friendly way, a lot of the mental suffering of patients can be avoided.
