For more than a century, WIV-ISP has been the reference in the field of public health. WIV-ISP emerged from the merger of the Pasteur Institute of Brabant and the Institute for Hygiene and Epidemiology (IHE) and has achieved many successes over more than 110 years. Today, its expertise is generally recognised, both in Belgium and abroad.
In the coming years, WIV-ISP will continue to monitor, identify and analyse trends and risks to health while, at the same time, informing the authorities and the public in an impartial and transparent manner. The work of our teams has one common purpose, which is also the the WIV-ISP's credo: to enable a healthy life for all.
