Affordable Health Care

The cost of health care in the Netherlands and elsewhere is becoming unsustainable, not least because of the steadily rising price of cancer drugs. Oncode feels a strong responsibility to help to make health care more affordable. Its Affordable Health Care programme will pursue this aim, for instance by funding projects on re-purposing abandoned and patent-expired drugs or on the development of biomarkers to enable the selection of patients who will benefit from specific medicines (personalized health care).
