Activity: Membership › Membership of committee
Technological developments make it increasingly possible to detect abnormalities in the foetus early in the pregnancy. New tests that are more reliable and lead to less invasive tests are also available. What do thesedevelopments mean for the prenatal screening programme? The Minister of Health, Welfare and Sport put this question to the Health Council, which established the prenatal screening committee for this purpose. The committee drafted a preferred programme for prenatal screening based on the present state of scientific knowledge and the (ethical) criteria for screening.
