CIb-RIVM logo.jpgThe Centre for Infectious Disease Control Netherlands of the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (Centrum Infectieziektenbestrijding, Rijksinstituut voor Volksgezondheid en Milieu; RIVM-CIb) coordinates the control of infectious diseases, including the registration of new HIV infections within the framework of the national HIV registration and surveillance programme.

SHM’s registration activities are closely associated with the CIb with regard to HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases such as hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV), as well as infectious diseases such as tuberculosis. For the purpose of national HIV surveillance work carried out by the RIVM-CIb and to fulfil RIVM-CIb’s reporting requirements to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), the RIVM-CIb and SHM regularly exchange data collected through SHM’s framework.
