The prevalence of ticks seems to have increased with time, and the number of patients with Lyme disease in the Netherlands is also increasing. Lyme disease and other tick-transmitted diseases now attract a lot of attention. Several national initiatives at different levels are now in progress, with the aim of suppressing Lyme disease and providing better care for patients with indications of having these diseases. A more uniform approach between different treatment centres, joint research and further expansion of education and continuing education for physicians and the public could lead to further improvement.
