Mission

Mission and objectives

Stichting HIV Monitoring’s mission is to further the knowledge and understanding of all relevant aspects of HIV infection, including comorbidities and co-infections (such as viral hepatitis), in HIV-positive persons in care in the Netherlands. 

Our objectives in achieving this mission are:

  • To monitor and report trends in all aspects of HIV infection by collecting high-quality, nationwide data from HIV-positive persons in care.

  • To  inform all relevant stakeholders, including healthcare providers, government, researchers, and the community of people living with HIV, about national trends in all aspects of HIV infection, including comorbidities and co-infections (such as viral hepatitis), in HIV-positive persons in care in the Netherlands.

  • To develop models that accurately predict future trends in the overall HIV epidemic and in the clinical course of HIV-positive persons in care in the Netherlands.

  • To monitor and report on the quality of HIV treatment and care in the Netherlands, thereby contributing to the national HIV quality of care standards and formal certification of HIV treatment centres in the Netherlands.

  • To contribute to national and international collaborative scientific research.

  • To act as a national reference centre for information on trends in all relevant aspects of HIV infection and in the clinical course of HIV-positive persons in care in the Netherlands.

 
 

Stichting HIV Monitoring

Stichting HIV Monitoring (SHM) makes an essential contribution to healthcare for HIV-positive people in the Netherlands.  Working with all recognised HIV treatment centres in the Netherlands, SHM systematically collects coded medical data from all registered HIV patients. SHM uses these data to produce centre-specific reports that allow HIV treatment centres to optimise their patient care and obtain formal certification. SHM’s data also form the basis for the yearly HIV monitoring report and are used in HIV-related research in the Netherlands and internationally. The outcome of SHM’s research provides tangible input into HIV care and prevention polices in the Netherlands.
