History of Man tot Man

Man tot Man began in 2007 as a collaborative project between Schorer, GGD Amsterdam and GGD Rotterdam-Rijnmond aimed at improving the prevention of HIV and other STIs. In the beginning, Man tot Man was aimed at the two largest cities in the country. Thanks to the success of the project, Man tot Man went national and the collaboration was expanded to include GGDs in other areas. Following the bankruptcy of Schorer in 2012, STI-AIDS Netherlands took over Schorer's role in the collaborative project Man tot Man. Would you like to know more about how Man tot Man got started, thanks to financial support from the Aids Fonds?
