Abstract

COVID 19 pandemic has abruptly changed our way of living, and concur-rently has shown the crisis of the welfare systems and their limits in the respon-siveness towards acute as well as non-communicable diseases all over the world. The loss of solidarity and community engagement, together with the progressive impoverishment of the general population, has become evident in the delays of the public health responses and interventions: the healthcare organizations have extremely suffered for the economic cuts and for the effects linked to globaliza-tion, for instance in the production and provision of personal protective equipments (PPE), assisted breathing devices, first aid drugs but also in the delays of life-saving surgical and medical interventions due to the need of devoting the scarce human and technological resources available to the fight against SARS-CoV-2. To escape from health emergency and back to building health and safe communities we have to realize different care models, which combine clinical and social care, realign care pathways, roles, sites, and services, and invest in the first richness of all the healthcare systems: the healthcare workforce.
