People with a physical handicap, mental handicap, or chronic illness have a much harder time participating in social life, whether this has to do with work, accommodation, social activities, or mobility. Improving participation is the aim of all the activities undertaken within this theme.
ZonMw contributes to this improvement through knowledge development and by promoting the dissemination and practical application of this knowledge. This cannot succeed without the involvement and practical experience of the target groups themselves, so these are given central importance.
ZonMw has several programmes related to this topic.
