The State General Accounting Office noted that the NHS is already called upon, in the provision of the LEA, to fight and treat AIDS. Precise indications are needed on the innovation of the provision with respect to the health activities that are already carried out with the current financial resources of the NHS, in order to understand if there are new or major tasks / services in charge of the NHS, or extensions of hearings of beneficiaries of existing services, and therefore adequately quantify and cover the resulting higher costs. Therefore, a contrary opinion has been expressed on the coverage of 1 million euros from the year 2023 from the allocation of the special fund of current part paid, for the purposes of the triennial budget 2022-2024, as apart from the “reserve and special funds” of the mission “to be distributed” of the budget of the MEF for the year 2022, since this endowment is already destined to measures considered priority for the same Ministry.

Therefore, the examination of a bill, the process of which began in 2019 and which is still being examined by the Social Affairs Committee of the House in 1st reading, runs the risk of getting completely stuck. , before the imminent end of the legislature. The bill, considerably amended by the Commission with respect to the initial regime, provides for the comprehensive and consequent revision of the rules for the prevention and control of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), currently contained in the Law of 5 June 1990, n. . 135, due to the changing situation of the disease derived from the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The provision provides, among other things, for the adoption of a Three-year national strategic plan for the fight against HIV infection and AIDS.
In order to give visibility to the actions already carried out at national, regional and territorial level in the fight against HIV and AIDS -with the unconditional contribution of Gilead Sciences Srl- the reporting platform of the Regional HIV Policy was developed. . The platform aims to allow rapid monitoring of activities related to the commitment of the main actors in the territories – such as the AIDS Plan, regional commissions, checkpoints, etc. -, with the possibility of consulting information and news related to the opportunity to access national and international public and private funds.
