Healthcare in the Netherlands is extensive, innovative and in many ways considered to be ‘state of the art’. The Dutch, with an aging population, face the challenge of keeping costs stable while dealing with an ever growing demand for medical services. The healthcare system in the Netherlands is based on private insurers competing for business.
In many developing and emerging economies, a substantial segment of medical services are commercial, so our experts are well positioned to advise on how best to offer superior healthcare products while, at the same time, keeping costs down. PUM senior experts offer advice primarily to private medical enterprises but are also well equipped to help NGOs and other organisations involved in healthcare delivery. 'Advice missions' tend to be practical and short (approximately two weeks in duration). However, these short missions may also include follow-up missions and even training in the Netherlands. Thus might a request for advice lead to several visits by our senior experts over an extended period of time, leading to long-lasting contacts.
