About us

The Viral Hepatitis Prevention Board (VHPB) is an international board of experts in viral hepatitis, active since 1992. Board members meet twice a year to discuss technical and country specific issues. These meetings provide a forum for experts to exchange ideas and to develop consensus guidelines on issues related to viral hepatitis prevention and control, all in line with WHO’s viral hepatitis elimination goals and focusing on the public health impact. Focus audiences are, in first instance, opinion leaders, policymakers, and health care professionals.

The Board has a permanent scientific secretariat, located at the Centre for the Evaluation of Vaccination (CEV) of the University of Antwerp.
