The war in Ukraine has caused many people to flee to the Netherlands. This group includes people with HIV. The Hiv Vereniging (Dutch HIV Association) is there for all HIV-positive people in the Netherlands, including this group. Together with AFEW International we started a project to support this group. In this blog we provide the latest information for people with HIV from Ukrainian in the Netherlands.
Latest update: 2 July 2022
I fled Ukraine and am now in the Netherlands, am I entitled to medical care?
Yes. Based on EU agreements, people who have fled Ukraine, or who cannot return to their country, are entitled to shelter, financial support and are allowed to work in the Netherlands. They are also entitled to medical care, including HIV care.
