Information for people living with HIV

In the Netherlands, following a positive diagnosis, you will usually be referred to one of the 26 HIV treatment centres by either your family doctor or the HIV testing centre. Each new patient will receive information from his/her physician about the registration and monitoring by SHM.

Download our patient brochure for an explanation of what happens to patients' data once they have been collected by SHM and how the data eventually help to further improve HIV 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.
