In Slovenia, people living with diabetes (PwD) on insulin therapy have access, free of charge, to all types of insulin and devices for blood glucose measuring and insulin administration with some limitations depending on their ability to meet glycaemic targets and/or the frequency and severity of hypoglycaemic episodes.
PwD in Slovenia have access to diabetes education both at the time of diagnosis and throughout the life course while psychological support is available but hard to access and it is primarily provided in paediatric clinics.
The country has electronic health records, but these are not always integrated into the same system. The COVID-19 pandemic has stimulated the uptake of e-health, telemedicine and remote e-services, including remote diabetes monitoring.
This country profile was developed with the help of the Slovenian Diabetes Association (SLODA).
