Abstract
Genital herpes is being recognised as a medical problem of increasing importance. Diagnosis and management are complex. The present recommendations have been established by a multidisciplinary panel of specialists and endorsed by all Swiss medical societies involved in the medical care of such patients. The aim is to improve the care of affected patients, to reduce horizontal and vertical transmission and to diminish the psychosocial burden.
