An effective approach to health problems and a sustainable health care system requires more attention to prevention, primary health care and public health in research. For this to be achieved, university medical centres (UMCs) should strengthen the academic basis of prevention and primary care, as the Dutch Health Council recommended in its report 'Research that matters'. We are now three years on and the NFU, the association of the UMCs, recently published its plan 'Research and innovation with and for the healthy region'. This is a step in the right direction, but we are not there yet.
