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!
Prof Dr Vesna Zadnik, MD
Director of the Slovenian Cancer Registry
To celebrate its 70th anniversary, the Slovenian Cancer Registry published a brochure entitled 70 Years of the Cancer Registry: Knowledge, Quality, Applicability, which includes a historical overview of the development and work of the Slovenian Cancer Registry with descriptions of important achievements and information on all of its directors. It also features pictorial material highlighting the rich historical path of the Registry – which we are justifiably proud of – as well as thoughts on the mission and vision for the future of the Cancer Registry.
