This chapter reviews the current situation in the Netherlands, starting with some background information on health insurance schemes, followed by a description of clinical genetics services, and a survey of community genetics services. It then considers the prevailing climate of fear and uneasiness regarding genetics in Dutch society at large and among politicians in particular. Finally, the chapter describes the activities of a small band of people who are trying to get community genetics “on the agenda”.
