H-TEAM

HIV Transmission Elimination Amsterdam

Objective

1) To decrease the HIV incidence among HIV negative high-risk groups (men-having-sex-with-men (MSM) and migrants); 2) To improve the prognosis of HIV-infected individuals and reduce their risk of transmitting HIV to others.

Background

In the ‘H-TEAM’ (HIV Transmission Elimination Amsterdam) project multiple stakeholders join forces to curb the rate of new HIV infections in Amsterdam, specifically amongst high risk groups, men-having-sex-with-men (MSM) and migrants. The H-TEAM project combines a range of innovative strategies to raise awareness about the benefits of early HIV detection and treatment, to implement more rapid and widespread testing, and to efficiently link infected individuals to treatment and care and the implementation and evaluation of pre-exposure prophylaxis in high risk MSM.
