Hepatitis Working Group

The working group hepatitis was founded in 2010 and is a collaboration between the Dutch Association of HIV-treating Physicians (NVHB) and the SHM. A large number of the HIV-infected patients has a hepatitis co-infection. Monitoring hepatitis co-infections is important to further the knowledge on, assess the impact of these co-infections and to assess the effectivity of the available treatment. Members of the hepatitis working group have advised the SHM during the composition of a data collection protocol for hepatitis co-infection in HIV-infected individuals.

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.
