The World Health Organization has issued the evaluation of the implementation of the Slovenian food and nutrition action plan, which represents a unique precedent, since the organization usually does not issue national evaluations. In this case, an exception was made because the intention of this publication was to show all other countries, on the case of Slovenia, how it is possible to achieve positive developments in the field of public health with innovative solutions and cooperation. The SLOfit system, managed by members of our research group was exposed as an exemplary case of monitoring system for the development of children and youth, but the report also presented our research findings. This evaluation is a form of recognition of more than three decades of systematic management of the SLOfit system and the construction of outstanding research infrastructure, which established our research group as one of the most pervasive and prominent resercha groups in the international field of public health.

The study titled “The risk factors of noncommunicable diseases among adult population of the Roma community” is the first-of-its-kind research conducted among Roma people in Europe. With this study, which was already conducted among the adult population of Slovenia in the years 2001, 2004, 2008 and 2012, we investigated health-related life-style behaviour of citizens (smoking, dietary and physical activity habits, drinking habits, habits related to the road traffic safety...). Results of this study provide a basis for formulation of policies and programmes for enhancing and protecting the health of Roma people, and implementation of the policies/programmes aimed at reducing health inequalities.

Properly selected and prescribed physical acti - vity during pregnancy has a favorable effect on the health of pregnant women and the fetus, and is excellent preparation for childbirth. Absolute and relative contraindications to exercise during pregnancy are well defined, as well as the war - ning signs to terminate exercise while pregnant. Knowledge of these is essential for physically ac - tive pregnant women and for exercise professio - nals that work with pregnant women. Pregnant women should be moderately physically active every day of the week for at least 30 minutes. The term moderate is thoroughly and clearly de - fined in the guidelines. Resistance exercises du - ring pregnancy are safe but it is advised to use light loads and a large number of repetitions (e.g. 15-20 repetitions). Strength exercises for the pe - lvic floor muscles deserve a special place during pregnancy. Appropriate forms of physical activi - ty for pregnant women are walking and jogging, swimming and aquatic exercise, cycling, Pilates and yoga, aerobics, fitness and cross-country skiing. Certain forms of physical activity requi - re special adjustments (alpine skiing, ice skating and rollerblading, racket sports, team ball games, horseback riding and scuba diving).

With the help of existing technical documents which determine school sports space, foreign guidelines and its own findings the monograph upgraded findings with recommendations and guidelines for the construction and technological modernization of existing sports facilities and their rational management. The scientific research findings presented in this monograph, have highly practical value not only for Slovenia but also for the wider central-European area.
