Health 2020 now available in Slovene language

Health 2020: a European policy framework supporting action across government and society for health and well-being that sets out a far-sighted and ambitious agenda for health has been translated in Slovene language and published. Translation came just in time, as in the following months Slovenia will work on the new National Health Plan and the health system reform.

Strategic objectives of Health 2020: stronger equity and better governance for health, as well as four priority areas for policy action (investing in health through a life-course approach and empowering people; tackling the Region’s major health challenges of noncommunicable and communicable diseases; strengthening people-centred health systems, public health capacity and emergency preparedness, surveillance and response; and creating resilient communities and supportive environments) shall certainly inspire the Slovene policy makers in their desire to achieve measurable impact on health. 

Health 2020: a European policy framework supporting action across government and society for health and well-being has been translated and published in close collaboration of the WHO Country Office Slovenia and the Ministry of Health as part of the activities agreed by the Biennial Collaborative Agreement 2014-2015.
