Prophylaxis, often known as preventive healthcare, is the practice of taking precautions to stave off illness. Illness and inability are affected by ecological elements, hereditary inclination, sickness specialists, and way of life decisions. These dynamic processes begin before people realize they are being affected. Anti-sickness measures rely on anticipatory actions that can be categorized as primary, essential, auxiliary, or tertiary prevention. Preventive medical services are particularly significant given the overall ascent in the pervasiveness of persistent sicknesses and passings from them. Cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease, and unintentional were the most common causes. There are numerous ways to avoid getting sick.

Even if a person appears to be in good health, it is recommended that they go to the doctor regularly for checkups to perform disease screening, identify risk factors for disease, and discuss tips for a healthy and balanced lifestyle. In pediatrics, some common examples of primary prevention include encouraging parents to lower the temperature of their home water heater to prevent scalding burns and encouraging children to screening for colon cancer, depression, HIV and other common sexually transmitted diseases like chlamydia, syphilis, and gonorrhea, mammography (to screen for breast cancer), colorectal cancer screening, a Pap test (to screen for cervical cancer), and osteoporosis are some.

Additionally, genetic testing can be used to check for mutations that lead to inherited problems or a propensity for certain diseases like breast or ovarian cancer. However, not everyone can afford these steps, and there is on-going discussion on the cost-effectiveness of preventative healthcare.

Non-clinical life choices like eating nutritious meals and exercising frequently that prevent lifestyle-related medical conditions, improve the quality of life, and create a sense of overall well-being are included in health promotion activities, which include prevention strategies like health education and lifestyle medicine. Activities that promote health and well-being on a very general level rather than focusing on a specific disease or condition are called health-promoting activities.

Personal hygiene practices like regular hand washing and safe sex to prevent sexually transmitted infections became common place after infectious disease agents were discovered. The understanding of hereditary diseases and the development of specific preventative measures for people who are carriers of a disease gene or have an increased predisposition to a particular disease have been facilitated by advancements in genetics research. Hereditary testing has enabled doctors to make quicker and more precise determinations and has considered customized medicines or customized medicine. Specific protective measures include the development of personal hygiene routines, sewage treatment, and water purification.

The monitoring of food quality has increased, and sanitation has a significant impact on human health. Additionally, air pollution is monitored in some way. Important preventative measures include vaccinations and medical screenings. Utilizing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) appropriately and receiving the recommended vaccinations and screenings can help cut down on the spread of respiratory diseases, safeguarding healthcare workers and patients alike. Latent diseases are the focus of secondary prevention, which aims to stop an asymptomatic condition from developing into a symptomatic one. Primary and secondary diseases are two distinct categories of diseases. The definitions of what constitutes a disease play a role in this; however, while secondary prevention focuses on early detection and treatment of a disease, primary prevention focuses on the underlying cause of a disease or injury. "Disability limitation" prevents potential future complications and disabilities caused by the disease. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment contain the disease and prevent its spread to other individuals.

Inability limit for syphilitic patients incorporates continuous assessments of the heart, cerebrospinal liquid and focal sensory system to forestall any unsafe impacts like visual impairment or loss of motion. Not by any stretch of the imagination like helper countering, which intends to thwart handicap, is the objective of tertiary evasion to support the overabundance capacities and components of a for the most part injured patient. Tertiary anticipation goals include: preventing pain and harm, preventing infection-related complications from affecting movement and other aspects of life, and restoring the health and well-being of diseased individuals. Recovery for syphilitic patients includes measures to maintain total incapacity from the illness, such as performing workplace modifications for the visually impaired and incapacitated or providing direction to re-establish typical daily capabilities to the greatest extent possible. In order to alleviate these patients' symptoms of movement and confusion, it is suggested that they make extensive use of equipment with adequate ventilation and wind flow.
