The national Register of Tuberculosis follows trends in tuberculosis. The incidence of tuberculosis in Slovenia dropped below 20 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 2000. Consequently, based on the criteria of WHO, Slovenia has become a country with a low incidence of tuberculosis. Based on this universal BCG vaccination of newborns has been discontinued since 2005.

Social Services offer counselling and organisational help in solving patients’ social and family problems.
