A child has a long way to go from birth to adulthood. And because a child is not a small adult, his or her health requires special attention and proper care. You can count on the help of specialists for this.
· The main Brussels hospitals have a children's ward. All information about these wards and everything you need to know about the hospitalisation of a child under the age of 16 can be found on the Hospichild website.
· There is no complete list of all paediatricians in the Brussels-Capital Region. It is best to contact your general practitioner for this. They will give you advice and can recommend a good paediatrician.
· The Queen Fabiola Children's University Hospital (HUDERF/UKZKF) is the only Belgian university hospital that caters exclusively for children. Here, children can rely on the most complete care, ranging from tooth decay right through to heart surgery.
· You can also find useful information under 'Vaccinations' on this website
· Kind en Gezin offers advice and consultations for infants and small children. You can also go there for information about child health, childcare, help in difficult situations and education.
