The ABCD Study contributes to the development and health of children from the very beginning. The idea behind this is to reduce the health and developmental differences between children from different cultural backgrounds. Your support makes our research possible.

More information about the possibilities can be found on the website of the AMC Foundation or you can contact Mireille van der Meij ((+31) (0)20 566 32 07).

Give every child, no matter the colour of their skin or social background, a good start.
