Rome, November 13 (AdnKronos Health) – In 2018, more than half a million Koreans (539,000) were unable to provide the necessary medical care and medicine. It is an average 10.7% of the absolute poor in Italy. The demand for medicines (993,000 in 2018) was 22% in 2013-2018 in the nervous system (32%), the musculoskeletal system (16%), the digestive organs and the embassy (13.4%), the respiratory system (8.7% 6.3%). This year, in general, more than 13 million people have limited visits and evaluation costs. This is revealed in the & # 39; 2018 Report – Treatment Contribution: Health Poverty and Drug Donation & # 39; implemented by Ibsa's unconditional donation from the Drug Donation Observatory, which is being promoted by Banco Farmaceutico onlus and BfResearch and announced today at the Italian Agency (Aifa ).
This document shows that the poor are spending one fifth of their lives on health. In other words, because of more urgent costs (because they can not be deferred), poor families allocate only 2.54% of their total budget to health and 4.49% especially in poorer families, they spend 117 euros a year (an increase of 11 euros from the previous year) While the rest can spend 703 euros per year (an increase of 8 euros from the previous year). ).
Ultimately, however, they spend more money on drugs because they are less precautionary. For poor families, the main part of medical expenditure is for medicines (12.3 euros per month, 54% of total). The remaining households use only 40% of medical expenditure on medicines. Because they invest more money in prevention.
In this regard, the expenditure of those who need dental services is particularly indicative. The remaining 2.30 euros is 24.83 euros. It is no coincidence that poor oral conditions have been indicators of poverty (economic and cultural). The savings strategy includes 5.6 million households and 13.7 million people and is considered actual public action.
During the three-year period of 2014-16, the percentage of non-poor households that limit visits and ratings increased from 24% to 20%. On the other hand, the share of the poor has increased from 43.4% to 44.6%. Despite this blockade of healthcare costs, official data show a gradual gap between public (reduced) and private (incremental) spending. In particular, the portion of spending on pharmaceuticals spending and the percentage of spending on families with historical records that are not supported by the Ministry of Health and Welfare increased to 40.6% from 37.3% a year earlier.
"There are too many people who do not have the minimum income needed to survive – this report in the report on the poverty of health insurance shows that the phenomenon has really come into its own," said Banco Farmaceutico, Sergio Daniotti says. It is not expected to decline significantly over the next several years. We also believe that our country features a gift culture that is expressed in a way that is especially visible in the day of drug collection. Thousands of citizens donate medicine to the most unhappy people. The way to change is that culture spreads between institutions and pharmaceutical companies, and the latter does not regard donations as exceptions any longer. But as part of a business development model designed for you ".
