Mayor's Message

“AIDS is not over and there is no reason to lean backwards. But at the same time we should avoid despair, we have good reasons to be hopeful. Amsterdam will start at home by stepping up our efforts to ensure we will be an aids-free city in 2030. It is an acknowledgement of all that we have achieved in our response to HIV. In recent years Amsterdam met the UN 90/90/90 goals. These facts means a lot in terms of improving the lives of thousands of people.

But that is still not the case around the world. The reasons why so many people in the world are still denied treatment are almost never medical reasons. They are bigotry, homophobia, religious fanaticism, unjust economic systems, and indifferent governments. Our weapons are not just medicine and evidence, but more important, our ideals of freedom, open mindedness and social progress. We believe Amsterdam has a responsibility to share its experiences with other cities. If cities cooperate internationally (like in the fast track cities initiative) urban centers around the world will greatly benefit from exchanging success stories and lessons learned in striving for zero new infections. Amsterdam will do its part, let’s do it together worldwide.”

Many of these people live in social isolation. Every day of the week, homeless people are welcome in one of our nine drop-in centres. Here they can eat warm meals, drink coffee, take a shower or get clean clothes. They can also talk to one of our social workers or take part in our Participation and Work Integration Programmes. Our 850 volunteers commit themselves to people with financial problems, socially excluded people, or people with addiction problems. In everything we do, we prioritise the self-reliance of our clients: teach a man to fish, rather than give a man a fish. The Rainbow Group is cost-effective, largely due to the immense efforts of our volunteers. This is one of the reasons that our organization has a CBF seal of approval.”"

Community Leadership Messages

“In the past 30 years we have come a long way in reducing the number of new infections. By working in close cooperation with all relevant stakeholders and key populations throughout the city and adopting the most up-to- date methods, we have developed a unique and innovative approach providing unprecedented opportunities to strive for an HIV-free Amsterdam.” 


Maria Prins
Professor of Public Health and Epidemiology of Infectious Diseases, Academic Medical Centre, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Head Department of Research, Cluster Infectious Diseases, Public Health Service of Amsterdam

"Bringing prevention, formal health care, key populations and the HIV community together into policy making has proven to be very successful. In the past years we managed to reduce transmission as well as stigma on HIV and testing. Each party doing what they are best at, allowing others to add in their expertise and creativity. This close collaboration has not only lead to a significant reduction in HIV transmission, but also to a swift connection to care, both formal and informal, of newly diagnosed people."

Reina Foppen

Cities are not only hot spots for transmission of infections, but also platforms for innovation and cooperation.

Starting back in 2013, the H-TEAM and the city are using Amsterdam’s energy and commitment to stop transmission of HIV and viral hepatitis.

We will continue doing so until all our ambitious goals are reached.

Elske van Hoornenborg

Amsterdam has pledged to create the best match between any particular strategy, whether biomedical or behavioral, and the needs and capabilities of the individual, no matter to which key population he or she belongs to."
