Support for scientific medical research that addresses major needs in society.
Medical progress does not fall from the sky; it comes after long and costly years of research. It is work that opens the door to new therapeutic treatments for the benefit of patients and those near and dear to them. Thanks to the means made available by philanthropists, the King Baudouin Foundation supports research in healthcare at Belgian and European levels, complementing public investment and working alongside partners in the public and private sectors.
