Diabetes is on the rise and thus one of the priority topics in Slovenia and abroad. In Slovenia, there are approximately 106,300 people on medications for diabetes treatment while this number increases each year for approximately three percent. An increase of the disease burden demands preparation, development and implementation of effective ways for disease management on systemic level. In the frame of National Diabetes Management Program 2010-2020, which manages diabetes in Slovenia on a strategic level, there have been many actions for better diabetes management carried out in the past six years; however, several challenges still remain, which need to be addressed in the future. In cooperation with the Ministry of Health, National Institute of Public Health (NIJZ) organized 7th National Conference on Diabetes Management.
