All organizations and parties involved in the prevention and treatment of HIV in Amsterdam are working together in the H-TEAM. The multidisciplinary teams that together form the H-TEAM are listed below.

Structure/Organization

For each cornerstone, a team consisting of experts from different partner organizations works independently on the development and implementation of innovative projects that will help achieve the cornerstone’s specific goals. The project leaders of the cornerstone teams together form the management team. The management team is led by Dr. Godelieve de Bree and carries the daily responsibility for the progress of the H-TEAM. The final responsibility for the H-TEAM rests with the steering committee, which is led by Prof. Dr. Peter Reiss and consists of the representatives of the partner organizations.

In addition to that, all teams are supported by two other teams: the data management team and the communications team. The data management team provides a coordinated approach to data collection and data storage, monitoring of final points and methodological support. The communications team supports all teams in developing communication strategies, press reports and other communications.
