Key Information

Preventative health reduces chronic diseases

Preventative health strategies, such as screening, immunization, and lifestyle changes, can prevent or delay the onset of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.

Preventative health saves money and resources

Preventative health interventions are cost-effective and can reduce the burden on the healthcare system, which is often overwhelmed by treating acute and chronic conditions.

Preventative health improves quality of life and equity

Preventative health can improve the physical and mental well-being of individuals and communities, and reduce health disparities among different groups of people.

Preventative health requires a system-wide approach

Preventative health cannot be achieved by individuals alone, but requires a coordinated effort from governments, health professionals, civil society, and the private sector.
