Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers

Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers (VHF) are a group of diseases that are caused by several distinct families of viruses. The term "viral hemorrhagic fever" refers to a condition that affects many organ systems of the body, damages the overall cardiovascular system, and reduces the body's ability to function on its own.
