The National Vulvodynia Association (NVA) is a non-profit organization created in 1994 to improve the lives of individuals affected by vulvodynia, a group of chronic vulvar pain disorders. The National Vulvodynia Association seeks to educate affected women about vulvodynia to enable them to make informed choices about their treatment; encourage affected individuals to develop self-help strategies to deal with the physical and emotional aspects of these disorders; provide a support network for interested members; involve and educate family members to promote a supportive family environment; and coordinate a centralized source of information on suspected causes, current treatments, and ongoing research for healthcare professionals and affected individuals. The National Vulvodynia Association works cooperatively with other health organizations to improve understanding of vulvodynia and promote public attention to these disorders. Educational materials produced by the organization include a brochure and newsletter.
