Health is our most precious asset and the two years that we painfully leave behind have reminded us of this. We use it to take care of ourselves.” Federico II University Hospital’s attention to women’s health has been recognized by the Onda Foundation since 2014 when the Polyclinic became a member of the pink vignette network.
