AIOP Giovani was formed in 2003 by Emmanuel Miraglia the then National President, and sanctioned by the Association's new Statute. The aim was to create a discussion forum and learning culture for young private healthcare business people who also may be working within AIOP in the future.

Today the association comprises 12 regional divisions: Lombardia, Veneto, Emilia Romagna, Toscana, Umbria, Marche, Abruzzo, Lazio, Campania, Puglia, Calabria and Sicilia, and 2 provincial divisions: Trento and Bolzano.
