Healthcare collapse, a system that risks leaving the poorest citizens behind. 58% of Italians appreciate the public health of the country.
Italian healthcare is collapsing and there is a risk of falling into a system that risks leaving the poorest citizens behind. Filippo Anelli, president of the National Federation of Orders of Surgeons and Dentists (Fnomceo), comments on the data of an important survey. It emerges that 58% of Italians appreciate the public health of our country, but President Anelli declares the alarming shortage of health personnel. This large gap will lead to the least well-off citizens being left behind.
We are in a situation where the National Health Service is no longer holding up, we are on the verge of an abyss and it will take very little to slide down the abyss toward the end of the solidarity and universalistic system. Already today much middle-upper class Italians use the insurance system as a substitute for that of the state, and if resources are not invested to maintain or attract professionals, the national health service will be less and less efficient and effective and an insurance system will be the next step . At that point, an important part of the population will have problems with assistance, because a series A and a series B healthcare will develop.
President Philip Rings
The Italian healthcare system has staggering levels of inequality . For example, the solution still not found for Calabria. On the one hand, therefore, if citizens are pushed even indirectly towards individualist selfishness, on the other, solidarity disappears . And if solidarity disappears, the health of migrants is called into question at the national level, Italian society is dismembered.
