The International Workshop in Ho Chi Minh City, co-organized by HKU-Pasteur and supported by the Pasteur Foundation Asia and Institut Francais, is going well, focusing this year on viral hepatitis, an international public health challenge, comparable to other major communicable diseases, including HIV, tuberculosis and malaria.

Students and faculty, hosted by Institut Pasteur in Ho Chi Minh City, are working on the synergies between viral hepatitis and other health issues, and reviewing the hepatitis response with emphasis on regional approaches.
