KCE Reports 241 (2015) About 1 million young Belgians (14-34) are member of a sportsclub, and in addition, many others are practicing a sport outside the structure of a sport organization. As we all know, sport is very good for your health. But, unfortunately, but luckily very seldom, it can lead to a sudden death due to cardiac failure. The authorities already have made a lot of effort to limit the risk for sporters. But can we avoid this kind of shocking events by submitting young sporters, without heart complaints, to a systematic heart examination?

KCE Reports 308 (2019) The vaccine for the human papilloma virus (HPV) which causes cervical cancer was introduced about ten years ago in Belgium, but only girls benefit from it. However, it is now established that this same virus is also involved in other cancers, including throat cancer. The recommendations have thus been reviewed and here, as in most western countries, it is now recommended to vaccinate boys too.
