In January 2022, AXA Italia launched “Protezione Sospesa” to offer protection and healthcare assistance to women at risk of domestic violence. When purchasing or renewing a policy, agents and clients can donate a “piece” of health protection at the price of 1 euro or more, which AXA Italia matches to purchase a health policy for women who are victims of violence. Benefits include telephone or video call consultations with general practitioners, pediatricians and specialists, psychological support, home care and babysitting services, as well as receive prescriptions for specialist visits and diagnostic tests
