Slovenia implements policy actions in all 6 areas of the MOVING framework. The highest assessment received was moderate and was achieved for 3 policy areas: physical activity in schools, community and recreation (M), physical activity opportunities in the workplace and training (O), and physical activity training, assessment and counselling in healthcare settings (G).

Within policy areas, weaknesses and gaps were identified across the area of transport infrastructure to promote active societies (I); for example, active transport and road safety policies. Further, weaknesses were identified in public communication campaigns and physical activity guidelines (N), where a moderate assessment was achieved. Gaps were identified in actions on physical activity outside of school hours (M), implementation of physical activity in the workplace (O), policies supporting public transport (I), and training in physical activity to healthcare professionals (G).

Much more needs to be done in all areas of structures and surroundings which promote physical activity (V) and physical activity within healthcare (G) to improve their assessment as they received a poor result. Further, national government action and good policy design in areas V and I is key to improving overall environments that enable physical activity.
