Geographical related health inequalities and inequities are of huge societal concern, especially when it comes to perinatal health and child welfare. Preventive Child Healthcare (PCHC) in the Netherlands has a unique opportunity to address vulnerable families. In this thesis the aim was to design, implement and study the effectiveness of a postnatal risk assessment in PCHC, as well as to study handover from obstetric care to PCHC and finally, to reduce child growth and developmental problems, particularly in families with a low socio-economic status.
