Heart failure (HF) represents a severe public health burden. In Europe, differences in hospitalizations for HF have been found between immigrants and native individuals, with inconsistent results. Immigrants face many barriers in their access to health services, and their needs may be poorly met. We aimed to compare the rates of avoidable hospitalization for HF among immigrants and native individuals in Italy.

Abstract

Heart failure (HF) represents a severe public health burden. In Europe, differences in hospitalizations for HF have been found between immigrants and native individuals, with inconsistent results. Immigrants face many barriers in their access to health services, and their needs may be poorly met. We aimed to compare the rates of avoidable hospitalization for HF among immigrants and native individuals in Italy.
