the impact of infectious diseases

drs. Jan Schans

The impact of virus infections is strongly underestimated in the Western world. The passion and professionalism with which the team of professor van Gorp tries to prevent and combat the effects is impressive. Unique is the multidisciplinary approach, the use of new media and innovative methods to spread their knowledge. In Suriname, for example, I saw how effectively students gained knowledge and tools were given to prevent infection with which they frequently face in their environment. As a manager of the city of Amsterdam with experience in different fields (IT, HR and work and income) it is an honor to contribute to the mission that knowledge of viruses is spread like a virus.
