Enhanced Health Promotion and Disease Prevention

The NHS 2018-2022 aims to launch promotion and prevention programs that engage and empower the population to act on improving their own health, increasing their life span, and keep our population healthy and productive

What is Enhanced Health Promotion and Disease Prevention?

The WHO defines health promotion as the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve, their health. Disease prevention focuses on prevention strategies to reduce the risk of developing chronic conditions and other morbidities.

Why is it a priority?

The evidence shows that investments in population health-based services, programs and interventions that focus on disease prevention, health promotion and health protection, will result in decreased demand and utilization of acute care health facility-based services.

What are our targets by 2022?

​●
5% decrease in obesity rate in children, adolescents, and adults
​●
30% reduction in smoking prevalence
​●
15% reduction in premature mortality from cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes and chronic respiratory diseases
