When you visit SHM’s website, a session cookie is stored. This is an essential cookie necessary for the system to function. No privacy-sensitive information is stored, visitors are not followed, and nothing is shared with third parties. The cookies are removed when the browser is closed.

The American company Google places non-essential cookies through SHM’s website as part of its Google Analytics service. SHM uses this service to monitor and obtain reports on how visitors use the website. For example, SHM can see which pages are visited most frequently and which pages are never viewed. This allows us to adapt the content of the website to better suit our visitor’s need. The information collected by Google is anonymised as far as possible. In particular, your IP address cannot be identified. Google can make the information it collects available to third parties if legally obliged to do so, or if third parties process the data on behalf of Google. SHM has no influence on this.

We regularly send out electronic newsletters in which we inform those with an interest in SHM about SHM-related news. Your email address will only be added to the list of subscribers with your explicit consent. Each newsletter contains a link through which you can unsubscribe.

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.
