Mission document Health & Care

In 2019, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy (EZK) has designated the societal theme Health & Care as one of the four global challenges for the coming years within the framework of the mission-driven top sectors and innovation policy. The Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport (VWS) drew up five missions for this societal theme. The missions are ambitious and still leading, and are in line with the policy goals from the agreements and programs of VWS. Therefore, government, industry, knowledge institutions and social organisations continue to join forces for the transformation of Health & Care. 

In this document VWS discusses the actualizations regarding the Health & Care missions and the link with the agreements and programs of VWS. Furthermore, VWS discusses the importance of the Knowledge and Innovation Agenda and the Knowledge and Innovation for the realisation of the missions and provides the context/preconditions for the start of this new phase.
