Amsterdam Conference Centre

National Conference STD*HIV*Sex


Beurs van Berlage

The Beurs van Berlage is a hotspot that cannot be missed during your visit to Amsterdam. It is the vibrant meeting point in the heart of the city. One thing is certain, there is always something to do in the unique historical building! In the months of July and August, for example, we have "Zomer in de Beurs" - a summer programme with a varied line-up; from children's shows to classical music, from guided tours through the Beurs to dining in the Grote Zaal. Check it out!

Inspiring speakers talk to you about developments and trends based on the theme “The Netherlands to 0": on the way to a sharp reduction in the number of STDs and zero new HIV infections in the Netherlands.

Theme of the 2019 conference

The Netherlands to 0: that is the theme of the National STI * HIV * Sex 2019 Congress. We have all the knowledge and skills to greatly reduce STDs in the Netherlands and to bring new HIV infections to zero. As a professional you also contribute to this.
Yet not everyone has access to good STD and HIV care. This still depends too much on coincidence, such as your origin, income, place of residence, teacher or social worker. The differences are large, while good STD and HIV care must be accessible to everyone in our country. That is the key to reducing STDs and HIV.

Other factors also influence:

  • The urgency surrounding HIV is declining among politicians, professionals and the public
  • Conservative thinking and acting increases
  • Good sexual education is not obvious
  • Health is increasingly seen as the task of the person himself

This makes it a challenge to further improve STD and HIV care and to make it accessible to everyone. We will discuss this with each other during the National STI * HIV * Sex 2019 Congress. Together we look for answers and translate this into sustainable plans for in practice.
