Secondary Prevention manages inactive illnesses and endeavors to keep an asymptomatic ailment from advancing to symptomatic disease. Certain infections can be named essential or optional. This relies on upon meanings of what constitutes an infection, however, when all is said in done, essential anticipation addresses the underlying driver of a malady or injury though optional aversion means to identify and treat an ailment at an early stage.
Secondary prevention aims to reduce the impact of a disease or injury that has already occurred. This is done by detecting and treating disease or injury as soon as possible to halt or slow its progress, encouraging personal strategies to prevent re injury or recurrence, and implementing programs to return people to their original health and function to prevent long-term problems.
Secondary prevention is concerned with detecting a disease in its earliest stages, before symptoms appear, and intervening to slow or stop its progression. Screening is central to secondary prevention because it is the process by which otherwise unrecognized disease or defects are identified by tests that can be applied rapidly and on a large scale. Screening tests distinguish apparently healthy people from those who probably have the disease. Secondary prevention is based on the idea that intervening early in the clinical course will be more effective and cost-effective than later.
