The Viral Hepatitis Interest Group (VHIG) is a loose affiliation of virologists, hepatologists, infectious disease physicians, surgeons, paediatricians and scientists interested in viral hepatitis. The inaugural meeting took place in 2012 at the Division of Medical Virology, Stellenbosch University involving Professor Michael Kew, Professor Wolfgang Preiser, Professor Christo van Rensburg, Dr Jantjie Taljaard and Dr Mark Sonderup. The aim of the group is to provide an opportunity to discuss issues related to viral hepatitis in the African setting. Viral hepatitis is a forgotten disease, with HIV, tuberculosis and malaria being the focus of most of the major health initiatives here.
