The Health Council of the Netherlands is an independent scientific advisory body whose legal task it is to advise ministers and Parliament in the field of public health and health/healthcare research. Ministers ask the Council for advice which they can use to substantiate policy decisions. The Health Council also has an “alerting” function: it can give unsolicited advice.
