Roma, November 9 - President Giorgio Napolitano
spoke out in defence of Italy's national health service on
Friday even while warning against being overly protective of the
existing system.
''I believe that the preservation (of the national health
service) is compatible with greater selectivity in and reduction
of public spending on condition that rationalising and
innovative solutions are sought,'' said Napolitano in reference
to broad health sector cuts introduced by the government as part
of austerity measures to shore up the struggling national
economy.
''We need to look ahead, we need to look a long way and
discover how best to use the resources that belong to the
community and to citizens,'' said the President, adding that he
believed ''the creation of the national health service 34 years
ago as the result of a bipartisan decision represented a big
leap forward'' for the country.
