Ahti aims to improve the health of the citizens of the City of Amsterdam at lower cost. We use our knowledge and experience also to provide services in other parts of the Netherlands. In just a few years, we have been involved in over 80 projects and proposals, either as initiator, partner or manager and we delivered specialized services. Our partnerships give us the opportunity to work across a range of areas and identify the gaps where impact is needed. Our projects illustrate our approach and how we foster innovative and sustainable healthcare solutions.

Main focus areas are a.o. Cardiovascular Risk Management, elderly care, youth care and healthy weight. We turn data into actionable insights, so that municipalities and other organizations can use the available data to improve health and healthcare.


ahti data analysis


Every year, some 150 to 200 people in Amsterdam are diagnosed with HIV/AIDS, often at an advanced stage. These ’late presentation’ cases are of specific concern as the risk to infect others is relatively high and successful treatment is difficult and costly. It is estimated that some 6 percent (~ 380 people) of all HIV infected people in the city are not yet diagnosed.


Fieldlabs, neighbourhood healthcare in the 21st century

This project aims at innovation in health care through strengthening the education of nurses. Fieldlabs creates learning spaces in the neighbourhood to facilitate interaction between clients, patients, professionals and students. New health technologies are an important part of these interactions. Fieldlabs offers a testing area for new technologies that clients and professionals can use in the clients’ residence.

City Rhythm Grid social cohesion security data

City Rhythm

City Rhythm aims to enhance the sense of security in a specific neighborhood by looking at how various factors relate to each other and how this can stimulate social cohesion. Together with TU Delft and Wageningen University, ahti is looking to identify rhythm in quantitative data and see how it is linked with social cohesion in a neighborhood.


Wijkbrede Aanpak gezondheid Amsterdam

Neighborhood based Approach

Changing demographics, the increase of chronic diseases and a growing demand of health care services are causing a continuous pressure on health budgets. The health care system in the Netherlands is changing, pivoting towards a more societal approach – our so called ‘participatie’ (participation). The quest for sustainable care solutions is not addressing technology only. In Amsterdam, new multidisciplinary approaches are now being developed.



A positive attitude to health starts at a young age. We developed an educational program for children on health and entrepreneurship, together with Stichting Jong Ondernemen. In Amsterdam, this was combined with a contest: the Youth4Health Challenge, that was supported by GGD Amsterdam and took place in NEMO.
