'For vital functioning citizens in a healthy economy.'

Health & Care missions

Top Sector Life Sciences & Health works together with a large public and private coalition to realise five Health & Care missions, consisting of a central mission and four underlying missions. The central mission states: By 2040, all Dutch citizens will live at least five years longer in good health, while the health inequalities between the lowest and highest socioeconomic groups will have decreased by 30%.

Future images

Together with experts from the field, the health and care-coalition created clear and shared pictures of the desired future in 2030, that show what needs to happen to achieve the impact envisioned by the missions.
