“It is important to rekindle the spotlight on chronic conditions and on patients with psoriasis, in particular because this pathology is not included in the National Chronicity Plan.. It should be inserted, recognized and made sure that the National Chronicity Plan has new life through a specific financingan update and a much more stringent monitoring system than what we have had so far “, he said Tonino Acetipresident of Salutequità, on the sidelines of the conference ‘Psoriasis: chronicity and patient needs’ promoted by Apiafco – Association of Italian psoriasis friends of the Corazza Foundation, held in Rome at the Chamber of Deputies.
“I remember that the Region of Sardinia – underlined Aceti – only formally implemented the National Chronicity Plan approved in 2016 with a resolution on 31 August 2021. So there is a lot to do”. Aceti then added: “Today we have had a dialogue with the world of associations, with scientific societies, with politics and administrations. Only this coalition of all actors can really change the rights of people with psoriasis and the rights of patients in general for the better. We are very confident, we believe that a big step forward has been made today and we are now projected even more strongly into the near future for the rights of people with psoriasis. ”
“It is essential to resume talking about chronicity – concluded Aceti – especially at this moment in which the Covid 19 pandemic is slowly emerging. In this pandemic, everything has happened regarding the health of non-Covid patients. The Court of Conti told us that in 2020, compared to 2019, 1.3 million hospitalizations were missed and that there were 144 million fewer specialist services. Istat tells us that one third of check-ups are aimed at setting up of therapeutic plans, therefore a third of the visits for the chronically ill, have skipped compared to 2019 “.
