The aim of this study is to assess performance of using healthcare tools to understand genital Herpes Simplex Virus-2 (HSV-2) in patients 18 years of age in the United States and Europe.

More specifically, the study aims to evaluate patient-reported outcome and quality-of-life endpoints as well as the performance study procedures in a decentralised setting. Ultimately, this study will allow generating additional real-world evidence (RWE) on patterns of recurrences and other key parameters.
