Key Findings

Government programs on promoting disease awareness have increased
Driven largely by increased government promotions and awareness programs, a number of health-care bodies have been set up with the objective to promote the importance of preventive medicine, for instance, cessation of tobacco and alcohol, importance of exercise, dietary changes and regular health checkups.

Preventive health interventions are costeffective
Relative to treatment procedures, preventive health interventions are cost-effective, both from the prospective of health service payers and public funded health systems. Early diagnosis and prevention of disease and its symptoms reduces burden on inpatient/outpatient care, ambulatory services, medications and rehabilitation.

Government funding to focus on primary and secondary prevention has increased
The percentage of gross domestic product spent on healthcare has risen sharply across the globe in the last five decades and policy makers have supported preventive healthcare as a tool to slow the rate of growth in healthcare spending. Increased public funding for health counselling and vaccination programs are seen as the key to success in promoting preventive healthcare.

Role of self-monitoring devices hold key to the success of preventive healthcare
Self-monitoring devices, especially blood glucose monitoring devices, cholesterol measuring devices and an increased focus on wearable electronic health trackers shall hold key to preventive healthcare as these devices allow users to test their vitals at home.
