H-TEAM is a unique collaboration between all stakeholders involved in the prevention and care of HIV in the Netherlands, including key affected communities. Centered in Amsterdam, it is at the forefront of HIV/AIDS research worldwide.H-TEAM develops and implements innovative strategies to expand testing and immediate treatment for HIV, as well as to prevent further transmission of the virus. These new strategies are key to curb the epidemic and preserve the health of people living with HIV.
"To stop the urban HIV epidemic, inclusivity is essential. In addition to actively involving all key populations and stakeholders in our local efforts to control HIV, we believe Amsterdam has a responsibility to share its experiences with other cities. If cities cooperated internationally, urban centers around the world would greatly benefit from exchanging success stories and lessons learned in striving for zero new infections.”
