‘Preventive Care’ is any medical intervention that defends against health emergencies. It includes proactive measures such as screening and diagnostic tests that can help individuals check their health status and identify illnesses at an early stage. Regular health check-ups not only help to reduce sickness but over the longterm can also greatly reduce healthcare costs associated with medical emergencies.
Health screening is critical for the identification of diseases that don’t present noticeable symptoms during onset. Certain illnesses also present varying degrees of risk to people depending on their age, gender, genetics or background: this includes Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) like diabetes, breast cancer and cardiovascular disease, and communicable diseases such as influenza, chickenpox and STDs.
Preventative healthcare can play a key role in keeping these potentially deadly diseases at bay. Preventive testing empowers individuals, allowing them to preemptively seek medical advice, adopt healthier lifestyles and avoid non-communicable diseases such as cancer and kidney failure which often strike silently. Early detection allows patients to get the right treatment at the right time, avoiding major health complications and boosting the chance of treatment success.
