International Conference

International Conference on Dutch Veterans Health Care 

Amsterdam | 4, 5, 6 April 2018

With close to 60.000 regular force members in the Dutch Armed Forces, 5.000 reserve members and over 90.000 veterans, the Netherlands has a significant veteran population with unique risks, exposures and experiences that requires coordinated care. It is for this reason that we created the LZV – the National Health Care System for Veterans in the Netherlands. Our goal is to cure veterans with psychic and pscyhosocial mission related disorders and to achieve the sustained optimal social participation of traumatized veterans.


For ten years the LZV has worked to engage existing civil and military organizations with psychotrauma expertise and research, and to foster knowledge transfer. Our coordinated cooperation enables us to guarantee more than the financial means for veterans to pay for treatment. The LZV guarantees state-of-the-art, quality-driven treatment and care facilities specifically for veterans that are both available and easily accessible


In 2018 the LZV wants to showcase this work and we are inviting international opinion leaders and executives from these sectors to come together at our conference in Amsterdam to acquire information, exchange ideas, share insight, discuss research, learn and collaborate.

I'm looking forward to seeing you in Amsterdam,


B.J. Berendsen, MD
