The ’20th Report on Chronicity Policy’ titled ‘Stop at the Plan’ was presented in Rome at the Roma Eventi Congress Center, which aims to highlight the health inequalities faced by citizens suffering from chronic diseases. It was introduced by the CnAMC, the national coordination of the approximately 100 associations of chronic and rare patients. For the report, produced by Cittadinanzattiva, more than half of patients with chronic diseases reported long waits for checkups and diagnostic tests. It has been found that one in four citizens with a rare disease has to leave their place of residence to receive adequate treatment, one in three has waited more than ten years to receive a diagnosis and two thirds of patients have to pay the cost of psychological support . While about 2 million Italians suffer from rare diseases – many of these are pediatric patients – as many as 4 in 10 suffer from at least one chronic disease.
