  • the primary prevention -  to avoid the development of health problems
  • the secondary prevention - focus on early disease detection with screening and testing
  • the tertiary prevention  - aims to reduce the negative impact of the existent diseases by restoring function, reducing complications and improving the quality of life of the patient.
