English translation:influx of ill people and those that have been rejected on medical grounds
Explanation:
Since you didn´t provide any additional context, I guessed instroom means influx (as an influx in society as a whole) WAO stands for Wet op de Arbeids Ongeschiktheid which is one of the most famous laws of Dutch Social Security and is applied to those that are for 70 % disabled (in medical grounds)

Hope this is of any help
