Epidemiologists (or those interested in epidemiology) can join the society. The VvE is affiliated with the Federation of Scientific Medical Societies (FEDERA), and with over 1150 members has become one of the largest societies within FEDERA. The VvE's mission is to promote epidemiological education and adequate implementation of epidemiological studies in the Netherlands.
