Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


The Italian Prevention Plan (IPP) is developed every two years by a concerted action of Minister of Health and Regions and represents a key document that defines the preventive actions within the public health care system in Italy. In view of the raising concern on the potential for use of predictive genomic tests for common complex diseases, the Minister asked the Italian Network of Public Health Genomics (SPHINGE) to implement for the first time a dedicated section on public health genomics inside the IPP of 2010–2012.
