Distinguished colleagues and friends!
This year, the Slovenian Cancer Registry is celebrating its 70th anniversary. For seven decades, it has maintained its core mission of being the national registry for the collection, processing and presentation of high-quality data on all new cancer cases and the survival of cancer patients in the country.
In Europe and the world, it is recognized as one of the oldest and best population-based cancer registries. With high-quality data on the burden of cancer in the country, it is one of the most complete healthcare databases in Slovenia and a starting point for the preparation of national cancer control programmes, which contribute to the prevention and early detection of cancer as well as improved treatment, survival, and quality of life for all cancer patients.
The highly trained, closely-knit team working at the Slovenian Cancer Registry will continue to strive to make an important contribution in the fight against cancer in Slovenia and beyond.
We invite you to join us in celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Slovenian Cancer Registry!

TIMELINE OF THE SOVENIAN CANCER REGISTRY FROM ESTABLISHMENT TO TODAY
We invite you to explore the key milestones in the 70-year history of the Slovenian Cancer Registry in the timeline put together by the staff of the Registry and the Institute of Oncology Ljubljana.
It showcases an overview of the work and important events in the period from the establishment of the Slovenian Cancer Registry in 1950 to the present day. Interesting pictorial material on display testifies to the rich tradition, knowledge and experience of the staff at the Cancer Registry. The material is in Slovene language only, but google-translate gives basic insight.
