Advocate for and promote the interests of those who
suffer from HS by encouraging those with HS to be their own best health
advocate and to:
Seek medical treatment without delay.
Talk with a doctor about current treatment options
and insist on appropriate and timely pain relief.
Discuss feelings of anxiety and depression which
is common to HS.
Seek support from friends, family and co-workers.
Find understanding and relieve the tension of feeling alone with HS.
Write a letter to local media and/or locally elected
politician/parliamentarian and include the HSF Information Kit. Discuss
relevant issues, such as a lack of medical and specialist facilities
in the area, or financial barriers that must be overcome in order to receive
appropriate and timely health care.
Promote the idea that in order to support patients
and families with HS, governments need to make HS a public health priority.
