An Indicator System for the Evaluation of Public Health Programmes: The Case of the Region of Piedmont
Part of the Health Systems Research book series (HEALTH)
The Italian public health sector was radically reformed in 1978. The new national health service replaced the previous system which was based on several uncoordinated and mostly single-purpose agencies. At present the National Health Service operates at three levels:
Central: the state level
Intermediate: the twenty-one regional governments
Local: the 671 so-called Unità Sanitarie Locali (USL) or local health units
