Abstract:
One of the most important tasks of health care systems all over the world is to keep watch over health of the youngest population groups. Preventing various diseases by taking preventive measures in this population group saved millions of lives in the past. The paper presents the rough overview of the concept of disease prevention in preschool- and school-age children. The organisational scheme in Slovenia is used as an example. The consultation rooms in Slovenia are intended for healthy babies and children. They are not intended only for child’s care, but also for giving practical advice to children’s parents. Consultations are not limited only on child’s care. Parents are also advised about various determinants of children’s health e.g. appropriate diet as well. All the childrens frequent diseases are fought against according to the common doctrine as well. Several preventive systematic health examination and preventive measures are performed.
