The HELIUS study is a prospective cohort study on health and health care among an urban multi-ethnic population. The aim of the HELIUS study is to gain insight in the biological, psychological and social causes of the unequal burden of disease across ethnic groups, and ultimately enable the improvement of health care and prevention strategies. The study is being carried out in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and is an initiative of the Academic Medical Center (AMC) and the Public Health Service of Amsterdam (GGD Amsterdam).

In 2019 a new data collection will be starting for HELIUS. Therefore the HELIUS initiative is looking for a coordinator for the collection of data.
