The Italian Ministry of Health has unveiled plans to launch a national screening initiative for type 1 diabetes and celiac disease in children aged 1 to 17.

This child screening program, scheduled to commence in January 2024, will involve regular screenings every few years to detect these conditions in children.

A total budget of 3.85 million euros has been allocated for each of the years 2024 and 2025, with a reduced budget of 2.85 million euros per year beginning in 2026.

This proactive step aims to enhance early diagnosis and intervention for these health conditions in Italian children, potentially improving their long-term health outcomes.
