Assistant Agency for Preventive Health

About us
Health is defines as the complete recovery of physical, psychological and social diseases, not just as the lack of illnesses or disabilities. Hence, it could be argued that the preventive health could protect the well-being of individuals and the safety of their society. We completely believe in the argument saying that "an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure", as it is known that if you do a little to prevent the infection, you won't need to do a lot to cure it. May Allah bless scholar Ibn Sina, who said "Medicine protects health and prevents diseases".
The prevention of disease can be reached through focusing on future and benefiting from the previous and recent lessons. If we do so, we can ensure a good planning for the future. From this point, the health domain is linked to other behavioral, social, economic and environmental aspects, given that the whole society and all concerned bodies are liable for achieving this target, not only the Ministry of Health.
For its part, the Assistant Agency for Preventive Health looks forward to preventing causes beyond the spread of communicable and non-communicable diseases through adopting some health mechanisms, such as spreading health education aimed to prevent the incidence of diseases, promoting individual behaviors, briefing citizens on the risk factors leading to diseases, and providing different kinds of healthcare to curb the spread of infections.
The agency uses also many health survey programs that lead to the early detection of diseases, thus complications and deaths resulting from infectious and non-infectious diseases can be prevented. There is no doubt that the latest technologies and developments in the computer field have played a vital role in the control of diseases, as they give the decision-maker adequate information on the best ways to make a right decision and develop plans, health priorities and policies appropriate for the prevention of diseases.
