#aware.hiv has been developed to reduce the number of HIV infections in the Netherlands down to zero. Our initiative is in line with the United Nations' aim of ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030.
#aware.hiv focuses on actively detecting people who are at an increased risk of HIV infection, namely the 7% of people living in the Netherlands with an undetected HIV infection.
The slogan ‘Dare to be aware’ stands for creating awareness about HIV indicator conditions and also for standardising an HIV test as part of the routine care for those with HIV indicator conditions.
“This is how we achieve 0 new HIV-infections in the Netherlands.”
