Consanguinity is more common among populations of foreign ethnic origin than among the native Dutch population. Consanguinity leads to higher infant and child mortality. Risks of (combinations of) abnormalities among children are not commonly known by the parents of foreign ethnic origin. Insight in the backgrounds of consanguinity among ethnic minorities may improve health education strategies and genetic advise and reduce the health risks of ethnic minority children.
