What do we do

The Global Child Health Expertise Group is a section of the Dutch Society for Pediatrics, NVK, and also a working group of the Dutch Society for Tropical Medicine, NVTG. 

It aims to promote the quality of tropical pediatrics, now called Global Child Health, abroad and in the Netherlands and to draw attention to the focus area in the NVK and the NVTG. 

She focuses on e.g. adopted children, refugee children, vacationers, immigrants and children in poor-resource settings. She does this by, among other things, improving patient care, contributing to scientific developments, exchanging experiences, providing education, finding out about new developments in the focus area, functioning as a point of contact for pediatricians and AIGT doctors, doctors of international medicine and tropical medicine. 

It participates in the drafting of guidelines, hotline of NSCK, organizing an annual symposium and an annual referee meeting. The expert group is responsible for approved AIGT training positions. 

There is a close relationship with the Third World Health Foundation (AMC/UvA chair).
