Hi there, Herpes Advocates. We're happy that you're here. 
Advocacy Prompt: Email NIAID

This week we will be lobbying the National Institute of Health 
Department of Allergy and Infectious Disease
Dr. Emily Erbelding 
Director, Division of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases

Examples of what to say:
I'm a patient advocate with Herpes Cure Advocacy. We need new HSV testing that works (FDA approved tests are only 50% accurate.) We need better and more effective treatments, a vaccine and cure. 40% of new HIV cases are attributed to HSV-2. HSV is not benign and is a neurological condition that is associated with cognitive decline. HSV also, like many health disparities, disproportionately impacts women and minorities. 

ASK: Ask Dr. Erbelding to prioritize HSV treatment, cure and diagnostic research in the NIAID research portfolio urgently.
