Stichting HIV Monitoring introduces new corporate identity and website
4 May 2011 - Stichting HIV Monitoring (SHM), the Dutch HIV monitoring foundation, has launched a new corporate identity. The introduction of the new corporate identity comes at a transformative time for Stichting HIV Monitoring, in which it celebrates its tenth anniversary. To coincide with the introduction of the new corporate identity, SHM has also launched a renewed website at www.hiv-monitoring.nl.
SHM was founded in 2001, and since that time has focused increasing attention on other infections and diseases that are important for the treatment and course of chronic HIV infection. The infrastructure created by SHM in collaboration with the HIV treatment centres for the collection, quality control and analysis of data is easily adaptable for monitoring other infections. As a result, SHM has developed expertise in collecting, analyzing and reporting data on patients with hepatitis B and hepatitis C virus co-infection. Besides contributing to improved knowledge of HIV, SHM adds to the understanding of other chronic infections.
The new corporate identity reflects the changes at SHM. In addition to HIV and AIDS, SHM will be open to monitoring other chronic infections, which is important for the treatment of people with, and possibly without, HIV.
