Everything about HD

We have compiled reliable information to give you an overview of Huntington’s disease. You will find interesting, clear, and didactic links to articles, FAQ sheets, videos and audio files about the history, basics, and symptoms of HD. We believe that the better you understand HD, the better prepared you will be to deal with this diagnosis.


We have compiled information about past, ongoing and future HD clinical trials and studies. You will also find didactic contents about the basics of clinical trials and drug discovery pipeline. We believe that the more knowledgeable you are about the research process, the more proactive you will be in the collective effort to find effective disease-modifying treatments for HD.


We have compiled different sorts of information (articles, videos, podcast, online forum) to help HD families adjust to this diagnosis and get to know the HD global community. You will find valuable resources that provide psychological support, as well as practical tips to better cope with HD challenges. We believe that the more tools you have to help you face HD, the better quality of life and well-being you will achieve.

30th Anniversary of the HD Gene Discovery

– May 10th, 2023

30 years have passed since the HD gene discovery in March 1993. The EHA acknowledges every single day the impact that the discovery of the mutated gene that causes Huntington’s Disease (HD) has had on the global HD community.

At the same time, the EHA realizes that the younger generations from HD families are often unaware of the importance of this scientific breakthrough to so many aspects of their lives.

Therefore, the EHA/Moving Forward team is launching an online campaign with interviews to key HD family members and professionals who will share all the stories and details about this discovery.

This first video explains what happened in Venezuela 30 years ago and how this still impacts us today. The video is in Spanish, with English subtitles.
