The association of HIV movement played a key role in convincing the authorities on the need for public health systems to provide reconstruction treatments to treat facial lipoatrophy. Basque Country, Valencian Community, Catalonia and Andalusia were pioneer Autonomous Communities, as well as centers of the Balearic Islands, Castile and Leon, Extremadura, Madrid and Navarra (with different results). In August 2008 in Mexico and during the XVII International Conference on AIDS, then Health Minister Bernat Soria announced the government's decision to guarantee access to all people who needed this treatment in Spain. In September of the same year, the Plenary of the Inter-Territorial Council of the National Health System (NHS) discussed its inclusion as a social benefit in the provision of NHS services, and atutored use; because, according to such discussions, the scientific evidence available to date on the safety and efficacy of these surgical treatments was inconclusive, especially in the medium and long term. The protected use is a prior evaluation procedure contemplated in the 16 / 2003 Law. It is an authorized and financed use, which in this case would last for three years. After this period, if the experience has been positive, this social benefit would be incorporated into the offer of services rendered. When we were drafting this guide, we awaited the approval of the Royal Decree that will regulate this use. The Autonomous Communities that do not have associated centers for the tutelage use would have to pay for the displacement of the patients to another Autonomous Community.
