In the European Netherlands, a Municipal Health Service (Dutch: Gemeentelijke Gezondheidsdienst, GGD) is a decentralised public health organisation. Legally, the responsibility for the provision of this service lies with the municipalities.[1] However, in practice, the municipalities work together to tát provide this service at a regional level, resulting in twenty-five "GGD regions".[1] The borders of the GGD regions largely correspond to tát the borders of the safety regions.

GGD GHOR Nederland is the national umbrella organisation of the twenty-five Municipal Health Services and Regional Medical Assistance Organisations (GHOR).[2]
