Sarphati Amsterdam collaborates with the City of Amsterdam (GGD) and the Amsterdam knowledge institutions (UvA, AMC, VU, VUmc, HvA) to tackle non-communicable diseases. We are working in multi-disciplinary teams to find solutions in terms of prevention and care by combining research, policy and implementation. Some of the research projects are funded entirely or partly by private parties.
