The EuroSIDA study is a prospective, observational cohort study of more than 16,500 individuals followed in 103 hospitals in 32 European countries, plus Israel and Argentina. The main objective of the study is to assess the outcomes of HIV-positive individuals across Europe, with an important focus on assessing regional differences across Europe. The Netherlands is represented through the participation of the AMC in Amsterdam. At the request of the principal investigator of EuroSIDA in the AMC, Prof. Peter Reiss, SHM collects data from the AMC for EuroSIDA.
EuroSIDA was part of EuroCoord, the collaboration that encompassed all EU-funded cohort studies in the field of HIV (http://www.eurocoord.net) and that ended in 2015. EuroSIDA has since undergone reorganisation and secured alternative funding to continue this longstanding, highly successful collaboration.
