“Public health in crisis, a major reform is needed and not spot measures”: the alarm of 75 scientific societies

The national healthcare system in Italy is facing a crisis, according to oncologist Francesco Cognetti, coordinator of the Forum of the scientific societies of Italian hospital and university clinicians. The forum, which represents 75 scientific societies, has highlighted various acute issues such as waiting lists, overwhelmed emergency rooms, and a shortage of doctors.

Cognetti emphasized that these problems cannot be solved with quick fixes or spot measures, but instead require a major healthcare reform. He pointed out that the root causes of the crisis date back to at least 2011, with inadequate financing being a major contributing factor. Comparing Italy to other countries, Cognetti noted that Germany has seen a 40% increase in healthcare financing, France a 30% increase, and Spain an 18% increase during the same time period.

The call for healthcare reform in Italy comes as the system struggles to meet the needs of its population, with patients facing long wait times and overcrowded hospitals. It remains to be seen how the government will respond to these concerns and whether significant changes will be implemented to address the crisis in the national health system.
