RIVM delivers high quality scientific knowledge and expertise to meet specific requests of national and international organisations dealing with complex issues in public health and the environment. The RIVM organisation consists of three domains with specific knowledge and expertise: Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology (Centre for Infectious Disease Control), Environment and Safety (including environmental incident service), Public Health and Health Services (including food and food safety). 

We keep abreast of new developments and trends in science and society and use the expertise in our institute as effectively as possible in an integrated and multidisciplinary approach to problem-solving. By continually exchanging and integrating knowledge and experience, we monitor and improve the quality of our output.
