Why Preventive healthcare?

Why Preventive healthcare?

It is common knowledge that sedentary lifestyles,stress, pollution,junk food, and addictions like smoking and drinking give rise to numerous diseases which, if left unmonitored, can prove to be fatal in the long run. Preventive healthcare when combined with things like regular exercise, and healthy food can go a long way in enabling people to live productive lives by keeping such lifestyle diseases at bay.


Preventive healthcare broadly refers to the measures taken for prevention of disease rather than its treatment.Screening for diseases, medications, immunization and healthcare counselling – all are covered under preventive health care along with general preventive measures such as clean potable drinking water, fresh air, adequate rest, physical exercise and well-balanced and nutritious diet. The right preventive health care at every stage of life be it childhood, adulthood or elderhood can avoid or delay the onset of a disease or prevent an already existing disease from worsening.

Each year millions of people in our country die of potentially preventable chronic diseases like heart diseases, diabetes, cancer etc. With the preventive healthcare this number can be significantly reduced as many diseases can be nipped in the bud through early diagnosis.Like the rest of the world, the importance of preventive healthcare is rapidly gaining ground. Our honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently cleared the National health Policy that lays emphasis on preventive healthcare. It seeks to engage the private sector as a partner to make preventive healthcare service affordable to the masses. This is a step in the right direction that will educate people about the benefits of preventive healthcare make us a nation of healthy, productive individuals.

Preventive healthcare should be viewed as an investment or personal insurance. Medical treatments are expensive and it makes sense to invest one’s resources and energy in preventing diseases rather than facing large medical bills in treatment of diseases in the later stages of life.
