Eifa towards the free pill – Health

Replacement of birth control pills, especially for women under 25 years of age. The Italian Medicines Agency (Aifa) has started a path in this direction, shared by Health Minister Roberto Speranza. But the tipping point will require some technical time. Today, the issue of reimbursement for oral contraceptives was presented to the relevant committees of the Italian Medicines Agency: the Scientific-Technical Committee (Cts) and the Committee on Prices and Reimbursement (Cpr). Minister Speranza shares the opinion: “With regard to the reimbursement for the pill, Aifa has started a procedure, not from today but for a long time, in this direction. It is a procedure that clearly needs technical time. The direction of travel is the right direction, and among other things, it is a direction It has already been taken up by some other European regions and countries.” However, a speaker on the sidelines of the National Congress of the Italian Federation of General Practitioners (Fimmg) in Villasimius specified, “It is clear that the procedure now has to be done within the technical times that will be necessary.” The debate about birth control pills and oral contraceptives has renewed in the past few days after the announcement of the governor of Emilia-Romagna Stefano Bonaccini that he decided to distribute the abortion pill Ru486 in clinics.
