Herpes Awareness Day 2023: Rally for Change

Join for a live Rally to talk about the need for change.

Want to help rally for a Herpes cure? 

Herpes Cure Advocacy (HCA), is a grassroots membership-based, international non-profit 501c3 advocacy organization with a goal of treatment, cure and prevention for Herpes Simplex Virus types 1 + 2. 

Our mission is to eradicate the world of Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV-1 and HSV-2) so carriers can be healthy and improve their quality of life. 

Founded in 2020, Herpes Cure Advocacy was born out of collaborative efforts with patient advocates worldwide. By channeling grassroots efforts in multiple patient advocate communities globally, HCA harnesses the power of patients themselves to create change.
