Gedeelte van de toespraak van minister Bruno Bruins (transcript van bovenstaande video):
…….With mutual changes to learn from each other. You might have learned that the Dutch healthcare system is rated amongst the best of the world and provides high quality and in the same time it is accessible for all. Still I feel we can learn a lot from India. For example the notion that not all human discomfort can be solved by a hardcore medical solution. In India Ayurveda is an ancient and respected way of treatment. I am not an expert on Ayurveda but I was told that it is all about balance and that being healthy cannot be defined in one way. Being healthy in Ayurveda I have been told was something different for each and every one, which is an interesting thought. In The Netherlands we are also learning to have a broader view on what being healthy actually means. Is it just the absence of disease? No, being healthy is about able to function to participate in society. To achieve one’s personal goals and live as independently as possible.”
