What we do

Stichting hiv monitoring (SHM) makes an essential contribution to healthcare for people with HIV in the Netherlands.  We work with all recognised HIV treatment centres in the Netherlands, to systematically collect coded medical data from all registered persons with HIV. 

We use these data to produce centre-specific reports that allow HIV treatment centres to optimise their patient care and obtain formal certification.

Our data also form the basis for our yearly HIV monitoring report and are used in HIV-related research in the Netherlands and internationally. 

The outcome of our research provides tangible input into HIV care and prevention polices in the Netherlands.
