Integrated, person-centred primary health care produces results: case study from Slovenia

This report analyses the performance of Slovenia’s primary health care system and the factors that have contributed to its impressive progress towards universal health coverage. Explicit national health policies to address inequalities in access to primary health care and the successful integration of public health into primary health care have been keys to its success.

The report argues that the long-term sustainability of Slovenia’s achievements is at risk unless policy-makers address four key areas in need of urgent attention. The report offers pragmatic and actionable options for tackling them. Both Slovenia’s achievements and its challenges provide useful lessons for other countries wishing to improve the performance of their primary health care system and accelerate progress towards universal health coverage.
