Would ASHASTD or some other organization be capable of setting up a funding arm for herpes research? Would this be something people would contribute to? I know I would if I knew it was legitimate. Does it already exist? An organization that collects money to further the research for a cure and vaccine possibilities for HSV? Would this be allowed?
I've been doing "a ton" of reading on the Internet these past few months and there have been many discoveries, the researchers would say. But as was quoted in the following news article from a Dr. Corey at the Uof Washington, Seattle, his opinion is that lack of funding is slowing down the path to a cure for herpes.http://www.forbes.com/forbeslife/health ... 03168.html
Now some may say this is self serving on his part but I buy it. Many health issues today have funding organizations that provide money to further their research.
Why not herpes then? Look how much awareness was made over the herpes dating site on CNN and the late night talk shows.
