In the past quarter-century the Dutch have taken a hard look at medical research and transformed it.
There are now many areas of excellence, but in this profile do not not expect to find them all ; you will read little, for example, of cardiology or epidemiology or oncology or thrombosis research.
Our aim has been to pick up just a few topics where the Dutch have made special contributions and ask why this should be.
The Lancet acknowledges the cheerful cooperation of all the contributors, and especially the assistance of Jan Vandenbroucke, of Leiden, who was our guide.
We begin with the healthcare system.
