WHAT IS PREVENTIVE MEDICINE?
The term in its literal sense, means to prevent sickness before it happens. The idea behind this is we focus on promoting and maintaining health and wellbeing, which will lead to the aversion of disease, disability and death. Examples of preventive medicine are health screenings, immunisations and healthy lifestyle habits.
We hope that by equipping the public with the right medical knowledge about self-care and illness prevention, they can lead healthier and better quality lives.
