Crucial health and health-care issues in Slovenia are addressed.The resolution presents the basis for developing the health-care system in Slovenia in the next decades and preparing relevant legislation on health insurance, which will preserve high-quality and accessible health-care system. It focuses on users and providers and seeks to (1) strengthen and protect health and prevent disease; (2) optimise health care; (3) improve the effectiveness of the health protection system, (4) provide for just, solidarity-based and sustainable funding of health care. The resolution identifies specific needs and possibilities in the health-care of vulnerable groups of population that have not been concentrated in individual areas for a long time, but are found in rural and urban environments, among youth and the elderly and where there is greater unemployment. In addition to other elements (economic and social status, education, ethnic background, culture, environment), one of the major factors of health inequality is the health-care system (access to high-quality and safe programme for preventing disease, treatment and rehabilitation).
