Abstract

Italy has a monitoring system for genetic testing, consisting in a periodic census of clinicaland laboratory activities performed in the country. The experience is limited, however,concerning the translation of genomic testing for complex diseases into clinical practice.For the first time the Italian Ministry of Health has introduced a policy strategic plan ongenomics and predictive medicine within the 2010–2012 National Prevention Plan. Thisachievement was supported by the Italian Network for Public Health Genomics (GENISAP)and will likely contribute to the integration of public health genomics into health care inthe country. Our experience might be of interest not only in Italy, but in other high-incomecountries, struggling to keep a healthy economy and healthy citizens.
