Prevention is better than cure.
Our health care experience of the past two centuries tells us that prevention is cost-eﬀective and can be implemented in resource drought countries. Prevention can provide mass coverage of aﬀordable health that treatment can never do. Vaccines, hygienic lifestyle, infection control measures in households, communities, health care facilities, and other preventive measures have extended the life expectancy across the globe.
