Virtual Communities

The collaborative spaces integrated to the VHL ease the inception and organization of general knowledge presented as news, files, images, discussion forums, chats and blogs. Spaces like those are increasingly being used for the exchange of relevant information about specific themes in Health.

The development of Virtual Spaces or Communities (or Online Collaborative Spaces) in the VHL has been constantly evolving since 2004, and several improvements have been allowing their integration to other VHL information sources.
