JVS is pleased to announce its special issue for 2024 entitled VIRAL DISAESES IN AFRICA. This special issue aims to highlight the current state of knowledge and research on viral diseases in Africa. The continent is home to a diverse range of viral diseases, many of which are endemic and pose a significant challenge to one health.
