Under the new regulation in Argentina, a social work, cover food to a celiac child. In this way, Justice did result in a raise of the parents of a girl who was a refund must recognize similar to that given for the purchase of medicines.
This was decided in these days an order of the Board II of the Federal Civil and Commercial Chamber did result in araise of the parents of a child suffering from the disease and ordered that the discount is recognized in the purchase of “flour and gluten free pre-mixes “necessary for those with HF.
Judges Guarinoni Victor Ricardo, Alfredo Silverio Santiago Gusman and thus Sift revoked a ruling of first instance rejected the claim for the deduction of social work in question, the Organization of Employers Direct Services (OSDE).
They resolved that, in accordance with legislation requiring obligations for social work with regard to coverage for celiac disease, “indicates that this includes the detection, diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of it, including flour and premixes gluten-free, with coverage determined by the implementing authority. ”
The same resolution states that it should be noted that on 2 December, Congress passed the law 26 588, which although has not yet been regulated, provides in article 9 the requirement that social work recognize the discount on such food .
“The fact that the rules provided by its regulations and that this has not materialized to date does not preclude its application to the case,” argued the court in its ruling.
The law in Argentina
During the first week of December, the National Congress and the Legislature of Buenos Aires law became a special initiative for people that promotes celiac disease research and labeling of gluten-free food.
The 200,000 celiacs living in the city of Buenos Aires may rely on eating the right foods for your condition. The company begins to pay off debt and this sector throughout the country, reaching some 400,000 inhabitants.
This is a very important step that reflects the need for the legislation required for a disease considered a silent epidemic, with multiple symptoms and often deceptive, and a diagnosis and a long and difficult treatment.
With the approval of the rule which declares interest in the study, treatment and research of the disease, is also expected to reinforce the necessary information on its scope and how discovered, since experts agree that misinformation is one of the greatest dangers for those who suffer: not knowing who is sick, it can cause a worsening of symptoms and consequences are very serious.
Celiac disease has been defined as a permanent intolerance to gluten proteins contained in wheat, oats, barley and rye. While it is a genetic condition, are born with the predisposition to, “do not always manifest itself clinically.
Therefore it is important to notice some points of the new standard Buenos Aires, covering many of the orders that celiac patients, celiac child and relatives had grown tired of doing: publishing a list of gluten-free products, to promote restaurants, bars and cafes including in their books of at least one suitable option for celiacs, improve diagnostic procedures, monitoring and treatment of disease and provide patients with limited economic resources of the food needed for treatment, since the diet Celiac is more expensive than the current because it must avoid products that are cheaper.
Very important is the requirement for food companies to report on their development of products suitable for celiac through labels, signs, special packaging, or by the phrase “gluten free”, information must also be present in advertising.
This legislation, in addition to a very delayed sector of the population also means an expected gesture of solidarity and acceptance of others.
When a discriminated social sector is recognized and it legislates for the rest of the community benefits because the balance and justice have been preserved.
