Focus of Preventive Medicine
The focus of preventive medicine is to improve the health status and immunity of individuals so that the body is strong enough to reject the threats of infections and diseases.
All organs and systems in a human body are interconnected, so any disease that affects one part of the body will have a detrimental effect on the rest. By considering the whole body as a unit, preventive medicine acts as a shield to protect the complete body.
