In the Netherlands, the Central and Eastern Region participates in this project. This region has a population of over 45,000 total births and 500 very preterm births per year in 23 maternity units and neonatal units.
This region covers the catchment areas of the two large level III perinatal centers in Utrecht and Nijmegen. Data are routinely collected in a NICU dataset on low birth weight infants. Radhoud University Medical Centre is responsible for data collection in collaboration with Utrecht University Medical Centre.
