Health promotion and disease prevention focus on keeping people healthy. Health promotion engages and empowers individuals and communities to engage in healthy behaviors, and make changes that reduce the risk of developing diseases and other morbidities.
Prevention is the most effective, affordable way to reduce risk for and severity of disease.Quality preventive services in both clinical and community settings will empower people to make healthy choices and eliminating health disparities.
A Preventive Health Checkup aims to identify and minimize risk factors in addition to detecting illnesses at an early stage. Research all over the globe has proven that it is more economical, not to mention far less distressing, to invest in an annual Preventive Health Checkup rather than visiting a hospital only when an emergency strikes.
The best way to prevent disease is to detect them early, which can be done only by regular health checks.
People living in urban areas are more exposed to non-communicable diseases due to an unhealthy lifestyle, stress, physical inactivity, and use of alcohol and tobacco products. A majority of the non-communicable diseases, which are lifestyle related, are preventable if detected in their early stages of insidious development and/or are controllable if not curable in some cases.
Health checks help you find out if you are suffering from a particular disease or condition even if you feel perfectly well, without any symptoms. Early detection and appropriate management can result in better outcomes and lower risk of serious complications.
