Updating cycle and review of the website.

The VHPB organizes at least two meetings every year. After each meeting a new meeting page is created on the website linking to the background document and the presentations of the meeting (as pdf documents). 

The background document is drafted by the secretariat and undergoes an internal review; based on possible feedback and comments received during the meeting this document may be updated before posting it on the website after the meeting took place.

Speakers at a VHPB meeting are asked permission to make their presentation available on the VHPB website. Speakers may decline this offer, make minor changes on the online version, or may remove a number of slides containing confidential information. The VHPB secretariat respects the final version of these presentations and does not alter the content of these presentations.

Following each meeting also a Viral Hepatitis Newsletter is distributed by the VHPB. These issues can be downloaded from the VHPB website (in PDF format).

On a monthly base a selection of viral hepatitis publications is made available in the publication section ‘VHPB selection’. A written selection procedure is available and can be provided on request. All other pages of the publication section are updated when the VHPB secretariat is informed on the availability of a new publication.

New website updates are always announced at the home/news page of the VHPB website, a direct link is also provided. At least once a year, all website sections are reviewed and if needed updated.

All reasonable precautions have been taken by the VHPB to verify the information contained on this website. However, the material is made available without warranty of any kind, either expressed or implied. The responsibility for the interpretation and use of the material available on this website lies with the website visitor. In no event shall the VHPB be liable for damages arising from visiting this website or from using information made available on it.
