Regions

Italy is comprised of twenty regions of which five are constitutionally given a broader amount of autonomy granted by special statutes. Each region is divided into provinces (except for Aosta Valley, which has no province). Regions are autonomous entities with powers defined in the Constitution. The twenty regions are: Abruzzo; Aosta Valley; Apulia; Basilicata; Calabria; Campania; Emilia-Romagna; Friuli-Venezia Giulia; Lazio; Liguria; Lombardy; Marche; Molise; Piedmont; Sardinia; Sicily; Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtiro;l Umbria; and Veneto.

Policy responses

As the regions of Italy are autonomous entities with powers defined in the Constitution they are able to devise and implement their own policy responses to address health inequalities. Regions often show a high attention to equity principles and ensuring equitable access to health care.

An overview of regional policy responses addressing health inequalities can be found in our Policy Database.
