Unique Dutch collaborative effort to identify FH patients

3' education - Apr. 1, 2015 - Amersfoort, The Netherlands - Dr. Janneke Wittekoek



The Dutch screening program to identify patients with familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) was previously funded by the government. That funding has now been stopped, but not all FH patients have been found. Dr. Janneke Wittekoek (director LEEFH Foundation) explains how a unique collaborative effort, paid for by reimbursment of insurance companies, aims to find all patients with FH in The Netherlands.

The information and data provided in this program were updated and correct at the time of the program development, but may be subject to change.
