Huntington's Disease Youth Organization

HDYO has more information about HD available for young people, parents and professionals on our site:



Coronavirus disease (also called COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered virus that is spreading rapidly around the world. It was declared a pandemic on 11 March 2020 by the World Health Organisation and many countries are putting strict measures in place to reduce the chance of high risk people being exposed to it and to delay the spread of the disease. That can include people with symptomatic Huntington’s disease - but mainly in the later stages.
