Progress depends on developing a clear understanding of the issues and finding the right solutions. ZonMw stimulates health research and healthcare innovation.
The ZonMw animations talk about people who need long-term support or care. Vulnerable people, like the elderly, the chronically ill and people with a disability or psychiatric problems. Such patients need assistance at home from family, benevolent volunteers, or paid caregivers.
There is an increasing need for a new form of support and care that can accommodate the wishes and needs of these patients and the people around them. The new ZonMw programme encourages collaboration between scientists, healthcare professionals and the municipality to make sure that everyone gets the support and care they need.
