In general healthcare can be classified into two categories: curative healthcare and preventive healthcare. Curative healthcare is the commonest, most available and most expensive form of healthcare. Preventive healthcare on other hand is less known, less available and less expensive than curative healthcare. Preventive healthcare (alternatively preventive medicine, preventative healthcare/medicine, or prophylaxis) consists of measures taken for disease prevention. Just as health comprises a variety of physical and mental states, so do disease and disability, which are affected by environmental factors, genetic predisposition, disease agents, and lifestyle choices. Health, disease, and disability are dynamic processes which begin before individuals realize they are affected. Disease prevention relies on anticipatory actions that can be categorized as primal, primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention.
