A TOOL KIT FOR THE PROTECTION OF PERSONAL DATA IN THE HEALTH SECTOR

Health is a sector where personal data is an intrinsic component of daily activities, not only for doctors themselves but also for all those who are responsible for managing care, at whatever level. Beyond the mere obligation of medical secrecy, it is essential that at all stages of care, people can be sure that all their personal data are protected, for the sake of the necessary trust in their careers, for the safety of care, their own safety and dignity, and that of their relatives. The protection of health data is an imperative of national sovereignty for the state, preventing this information from falling into the hands of parties who could use it for purposes that undermine the country's strategic interests.
