Basic health care


We provide free basic healthcare for all children and young people between the ages of 0 and 23. This is focused first and foremost on the prevention and early detection of problems. If problems are detected, JGZ doctors and nurses often make referrals to the General Practitioner or to specialised healthcare, such as speech therapy, dietary advice or youth psychiatry. The Youth Health Department also provides parenting support and information, for example on how to prevent cot death.

Social work and parenting advice


Parenting isn’t easy. Our social workers and youth psychologists guide parents and families who need a helping hand.  Changes in your own situation and major life events – such as marriage, divorce, loss, changes in your financial situation, etc. – can also affect you, your family and how you interact with each other. We help you to navigate problems and your search for solutions.

Vaccination Program for Children


The Netherlands has an extensive National Immunisation Programme to protect children against infectious diseases, the programme includes vaccination against 12 potentially fatal infectious diseases. Young parents automatically receive an invitation for their baby. Parents do not have to pay for these vaccinations. While participation is not compulsory, over 95% of parents consent to having their children vaccinated.
