Recently, numerous countries have suffered the impact of the worldwide financial crisis. Major economic problems have been faced by low and middle income countries; however, even some European Union nations (such as Greece, Spain and Italy) are experiencing the effects of the global crisis.
Several experts have noted the limited economic resources focused by governments, and international governmental and non-governmental organisations on health systems: dramatic funding reductions for numerous acute and chronic diseases, inability to improve healthcare organisations, incapability to replace personnel leaving their jobs (e.g. migration to a richer country or retirement), and inability to transfer new diagnostic, therapeutic and preventive approaches to daily routine clinical and public health activities. The most relevant outcome of this scenario is the increased burden of some diseases (inaccurate diagnosis and/or therapy and/or prevention). The highest risk of a difficult-to-recover picture is associated with increased probability of transmission of infectious diseases.
