Foreign immigration in Italy is becoming a phenomenon more and more related to families, instead of being related to individuals as in the past. In Italy, immigrants are no more individual workers: they increasingly get married, they have children and they are often reached by their families coming from their native countries. In time, their health needs chanced. This should have produced changes in our National Health Care System, but it did not. It is necessary, for the future, to implement health care policies more aware of the weakest ranges of population, particularly more focused to families living in difficult socioeconomic
and cultural conditions.
