Infectious Diseases

Our hospital is a specially designated hospital for the treatment of infectious diseases and AIDS. The Department of Infectious Diseases was set up in 2014 to improve the care for patients with infectious diseases.  In 2015 an outpatient clinic for travel vaccinations was furthermore started. We strive to have up to date information regarding infectious diseases as fast as possible, and offer optimal care.
 
Outpatient Clinic
The treatments offered at our outpatient clinic are centered on HIV/AIDS and imported infectious diseases (such as: malaria, dengue fever, and traveler’s diarrhea).
HIV is still not curable, but with the advancements of medicine it has changed from being deadly to a chronic infection. To offer patients a long term and reassuring treatment, specialized doctors, pharmacists, and a network to social services are present. In this way, next to control of the disease, social and mental support is offered.
