Exposures and experiences in early life and youth influence people's health and participation in later life. Together with practitioners, we study how we can identify and treat these problems in an early stage. This way we can prevent problems later in life.

Better prevention and treatment early in life has a major impact on people's chances later in life and on society. This is even more true for children and young people, and for their families, who live in disadvantaged environments with a low income or with health problems. We aim to provide new and better tools to make every professional contact count in improving this children’s course of life.
