Hello, 

 

I recently found an organization Herpes Activist Networking to Dismantle Stigma see below:

https://herpes.education/hands-herpes-activists-networking-to-dismantle-stigma/

 

Apparently herpes awareness day is oct 13th and their mission is to remove stigma. I wonder if we could put a move for better treatment and work on getting a functional, or at least gen 003 for now. The list everyone who is on the board. Thoughts??

The reason why GEN-003 didn't proceed is because they ran out of funds.  So HANDS won't be able to make that proceed.

Getting to better treatments or cures requires money, unfortunately.  Fred Hutch is working on a cure or partial cure using gene editing (there's a thread about it).

You can contribute to the Fred Hutch Herpes cure fundraiser as well.  The link is in my signature (thank you if you have already).
