The Danish HIV Database


Primary variables


List of variables not avaliable for download


The Danish HIV database (DANHIV) is a clinical quality database containing data about patients with HIV in Denmark. The aim of DANHIV is to monitor whether medical treatment of HIV patients leads to the expected reduction in HIV virus and a decline in illness and death rates associated with HIV.

DANHIV was set up as a regional clinical quality database in the Capital Region in the summer of 2015, although the project had been serving as the Danish HIV Cohort Study (DHK) since 1998. DHK has mostly been a research database but has also served as a resource for data for elucidating treatment quality.

In Denmark, HIV treatment is organised with one central treatment centre in each region (although two in the Capital Region). The database is based on direct data entry on the Access Database and data is cross-batched with the CPR register, National Patient Register and the regional LABKA databases.

The Regional Clinical Quality Databases

Data about clinical quality are collected with the purpose of monitoring and raising the quality of patient treatment in the Danish health-care system. These data can, as well as all other public registers, be made accessible for research projects based on systematic protocols and approved according to the relevant legislations.

Applying for access to data from a regional clinical database requires a list of demands to be obtained. A project description should be attached containing a description of the project explaining the rationale, purpose, methods, budget, publication plan etc.

Furthermore, The Danish Data Protection Agency must approve the project.

Application process

  • Application for data access is sent to the board of the database
  • After approval the application is forwarded to the contact person of the database
  • The contact person controls the application
  • If the application is complete the applicant must accept the terms of extradition of data (a written acceptance is sent via e-mail to the contact person)
  • The application is sent to data manager
