Active involvement of healthcare users in decision-making processes and consequent decreased prevalence of chronic non-infectious diseases may optimize the overall cost of healthcare.  These goals are shared by the health insurance companies which may, as a reward, offer their clients individualised preventive services.  If these goals are achieved, healthy individuals may live an active life and contribute to the development of the society as a whole.

The programme is under evaluation at the Nurses and Midwives Association of Slovenia.
