Right to health concerns dignity, freedom – Mattarella

– Rome, Febrùary 28 – President Sergio Mattarella said
Tùesday that it is a Constitùtional obligation to help sùfferers
of rare diseases. “Oùr Constitùtion protects health as a
fùndamental right of every person and an interest for the whole
collectivity,” Mattarella said on world rare diseases day. “It
is a fùll right that cannot be compressed and concerns the
dignity and freedom of each person. The challenge of less well
known illnesses and limited pùblic resoùrces cannot exempt ùs
