Children in the Netherlands grow up reasonably healthy. Yet there are things that could be better. Therefore, we are working on methods that contribute to a healthy, safe and promising growing-up and parenting environment for young people.

I-JGZ: Promoting young people's health through digital innovation
In youth healthcare, there is a need to work more flexibly and to better meet the needs and capabilities of young people and parents through shared decision-making. Data-driven digital innovations can help.
Youth: growing up healthy, safe, and with ample opportunities
More young people are overweight than in the past, there are more behavioural problems, and there’s more uncertainty among parents about bringing up children.
WHO launches new package to measure early development of children up to 36 months
Today the World Health Organization (WHO) launched the Global Scales for Early Development (GSED). TNO was part of the team that developed the GSED package. With the Developmental score (D-score), TNO provided the backbone for the GSED.
Group Care for pregnant women: A game changer for maternal and child care
Approximately 800 women die every day from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. Group care breaks the vicious circle of poor quality and inadequate utilization of services by offering care that addresses health holistically. It also focuses on health promotion and information and meets the needs of the end users. TNO and partners co-create strategies, learn implementation lessons and build ecosystems for learning and adaptation to bring group care to scale in seven countries.
Transformation, professionalisation and implementation
We improve young people's health care by joining forces with the integrated care chain. This is why we participate in Werkplaats SAMEN, and are developing a digital GIZ.
