Effective, efficient, safer use

Medicines are of great value to health care and society. ZonMw research into existing medicines is directed towards their more effective, more efficient, and safer use in day-to-day health care. Widespread dissemination and practical application of the generated knowledge is crucial to delivering health benefits to patients, improving the quality of care, and saving unnecessary costs.

The optimal use of existing medicines is an innovative area of work that shows great promise for the coming years.
