The Dutch Organisation for Health Research and development, finances and stimulates innovation through research in all health domains. We aim to ensure that healthy people stay that way for as long as possible. Also, ZonMW aims to help recover people that are ill, or that people with a certain illness can live their lives to the best of their abilities. Participation of patients in research is of paramount importance, for they can contribute with knowledge gained through experience. ZonMW focusses primarily and prevention and successful implementation in research and practice ( ).
