Project summary:

A number of programmes for health promotion and disease prevention are available in the framework of the healthcare system in Slovenia. Despite universal access to these programmes, however, there are noticeable differences in their utilisation among various social groups. The overall objective of the project is to reduce lifestyle-related non-communicable diseases by strengthening preventive health care capacity. The preventive programme for children and youth shall be upgraded and the programme for integrated lifestyle-related disease prevention for adults shall be developed. Decision makers and health care professionals shall benefit from the project. However, the main beneficiaries will be the users of preventive healthcare services. The Norwegian Institute of Public Health will actively cooperate in setting up the system for monitoring and evaluation of the healthcare programmes. Through exchange of experience it will also contribute to capacity-building of the Slovene healthcare professionals.
