GSVM MEDICALCOLLEGE
Disease - Prevention
 Activities designed to protect patients and
other members of the public from actual or
potential health threats and their harmful
consequences.
from: Mosby’s Medical Dictionary, 8th
edition 2009.
Levels of Prevention
4 levels
1. Primordial prevention
2. Primary prevention
3. Secondary prevention
4. Tertiary prevention
Primordial Prevention
 Prevention of emergence or development of risk factors in countries or
population groups in which they have not yet appeared.
 INTERVENTION: Individual and mass education.
 EXAMPLES: National programmes and policies on
Food and nutrition
Against smoking and drugs
To promote regular physical exercise
Primary Prevention
• Action taken prior to onset of disease, which removes the possibility that
a disease will ever occur.
• INTERVENTION: Prepathogenesis stage of disease.
• MODESOFINTERVENTION: Health promotion and Specific protection
Secondary Prevention
 Action which halts the progress of the disease at its incipient stage and
prevents complication.
 INTERVENTION: Early pathogenesis stage
 MODESOF INTERVENTION: Early diagnosis and Adequate/prompt
treatment.
Tertiary Prevention
• All measures available to reduce or limit impairments and disabilities
and minimize suffering caused by existing departures from good health
and to promote the patients adjustment to irremediable conditions.
• INTERVENTION: Late pathogenesis stage
• MODESOFINTERVENTION:Disability limitations and Rehabilitation
Disease - Control
 Disease control is reducing the transmission of disease
agent a low level that it ceases to be a public health
problem.
 It describes operations aimed at reducing-
1. The incidence of disease.
2. The duration of disease, and consequently the risk of
transmission.
3. The effects of infection, including both the physical and
psychosocial complications.
4. The financial burden of the community.
 Controlling the reservoir
1. Early diagnosis
2. Notification
3. Epidemiological investigations
4. Isolation
5. Quarantine
 Interruption of transmission
 The susceptible host
1. Active immunization
2. Passive immunization
3. Combined passive and active immunization
4. Chemoprophylaxis
5. Non specific measures
Disease control involves-
Early diagnosis
Needed for-
1. Treatment of patient
2. Epidemiological investigation for ex to trace the
source of infection from the known or index case to
the unknown.
3. To study the time, place and person distribution.
4. For the institution of prevention and control
measures.
Notification
 Once a infectious disease has been detected or suspected is
should be notified to local health authority.
 Disease undersurveillance by WHO
1. Louse borne-typhus fever 5 relapsing fever
2. Paralytic polio 6 malaria
3. Viral influenza A 7 SARS
4. small pox
 Disease under International Health Regulation(IHR)-
Cholera, Plague and Yellow fever.
Epidemiological Investigation
 The outbreak investigation helps to identify-
1. The source of infection
2. Factors influencing the Spread.
 These may include
1. Geographical situations
2. climatic condition, social and behavioral patterns
3. The character of the agent , reservoir, the vector and
vehicles and susceptible host population.
Isolation
 Separation for the period of communicability of infected
persons or animals from others in such places and under
such conditions, as to prevent or limit the direct or indirect
transmission of the infectious agent from infected to
susceptible.
 The duration of isolation depends on duration of
communicability of disease and effect of chemotherapy on
infectivity .
 E.g. chicken pox until all lesions
crusted ,usually about 6 days after
onset of rash.
Treatment
 The objectives of treatment are-
1. To kill the infectious agent when it is still in the
reservoir before it is disseminated.
2. Reduce the communicability of disease.
3. Cut short the duration of illness and
4. Prevent development of secondary cases
Quarantine
 Defined as “ the limitation of freedom of movement of such
well person or domestic animal exposed to communicable
disease for a period of time not longer than the longest
usual incubation period of disease in such manner as to
effective contact with those not so exposed”
 3 types-
Absolute
Modified
Segregation
Interruption of transmission
 Means changing some components of man’s environment
to prevent the infective agent from a patient or carrier
from entering the body of susceptible person.
 E.g. simple chlorination to complex water
treatment will prevent water borne disease.
 Vector control.
 Personal hygiene.
Active & Passive Immunization
 Active - strengthening of host defence ; control of some
infectious disease is solely based on active immunization-
e.g. polio , tetanus, diphtheria and
measles.
 Passive – 3 types of preparations are available
1. Normal human Ig
2. Specific (hyperimmune) human immunoglobulin
3. Antisera or antitoxin
NATIONAL IMMUNIZATIONSCHEDULE
Chemoprophylaxis
 Implies the protection from, or prevention of,
disease.
 Achieved by –
1. Causal prophylaxis-early elimination of
invading or migrating causal agent.
2. Clinical prophylaxis- prevention of clincal
symptom.
Non specific measures
 Mainly interrupt pathways of transmission.
 Improvements on the Quality of Life (eg better
housing, water supply, nutrition, education)
 Formulation of legislative measures and
integrated program.
 Have played a dominant role in decline of
diseases like TB, Cholera, Leprosy and Child
Mortality.
Surveillance
 SURVEILLANCE must follow control measures.
Defined as “ the continuous scrutiny of all aspects
of occurrence and spread of disease that are
pertinent to effective control.”
 The ultimate objective of surveillance is
“PREVENTION”.
Types of surveillance
 4 types
1. Individual surveillance- surveillance of infected person
until they are no longer a significant risk to other
individual..
2. Local population surveillance- surveillance of malaria.
3. National population surveillance- surveillance of small
pox after it has been eradicated.
4. International surveillance- WHO maintains surveillance
of important diseases like influenza, malaria ,polio.

disease prevention and control

  • 1. DEPARTMENT OF PREVENTIVE AND SOCIAL MEDICINE GSVM MEDICALCOLLEGE
  • 2. Disease - Prevention  Activities designed to protect patients and other members of the public from actual or potential health threats and their harmful consequences. from: Mosby’s Medical Dictionary, 8th edition 2009.
  • 3. Levels of Prevention 4 levels 1. Primordial prevention 2. Primary prevention 3. Secondary prevention 4. Tertiary prevention
  • 4. Primordial Prevention  Prevention of emergence or development of risk factors in countries or population groups in which they have not yet appeared.  INTERVENTION: Individual and mass education.  EXAMPLES: National programmes and policies on Food and nutrition Against smoking and drugs To promote regular physical exercise Primary Prevention • Action taken prior to onset of disease, which removes the possibility that a disease will ever occur. • INTERVENTION: Prepathogenesis stage of disease. • MODESOFINTERVENTION: Health promotion and Specific protection
  • 5. Secondary Prevention  Action which halts the progress of the disease at its incipient stage and prevents complication.  INTERVENTION: Early pathogenesis stage  MODESOF INTERVENTION: Early diagnosis and Adequate/prompt treatment. Tertiary Prevention • All measures available to reduce or limit impairments and disabilities and minimize suffering caused by existing departures from good health and to promote the patients adjustment to irremediable conditions. • INTERVENTION: Late pathogenesis stage • MODESOFINTERVENTION:Disability limitations and Rehabilitation
  • 6. Disease - Control  Disease control is reducing the transmission of disease agent a low level that it ceases to be a public health problem.  It describes operations aimed at reducing- 1. The incidence of disease. 2. The duration of disease, and consequently the risk of transmission. 3. The effects of infection, including both the physical and psychosocial complications. 4. The financial burden of the community.
  • 7.  Controlling the reservoir 1. Early diagnosis 2. Notification 3. Epidemiological investigations 4. Isolation 5. Quarantine  Interruption of transmission  The susceptible host 1. Active immunization 2. Passive immunization 3. Combined passive and active immunization 4. Chemoprophylaxis 5. Non specific measures Disease control involves-
  • 8. Early diagnosis Needed for- 1. Treatment of patient 2. Epidemiological investigation for ex to trace the source of infection from the known or index case to the unknown. 3. To study the time, place and person distribution. 4. For the institution of prevention and control measures.
  • 9. Notification  Once a infectious disease has been detected or suspected is should be notified to local health authority.  Disease undersurveillance by WHO 1. Louse borne-typhus fever 5 relapsing fever 2. Paralytic polio 6 malaria 3. Viral influenza A 7 SARS 4. small pox  Disease under International Health Regulation(IHR)- Cholera, Plague and Yellow fever.
  • 10. Epidemiological Investigation  The outbreak investigation helps to identify- 1. The source of infection 2. Factors influencing the Spread.  These may include 1. Geographical situations 2. climatic condition, social and behavioral patterns 3. The character of the agent , reservoir, the vector and vehicles and susceptible host population.
  • 11. Isolation  Separation for the period of communicability of infected persons or animals from others in such places and under such conditions, as to prevent or limit the direct or indirect transmission of the infectious agent from infected to susceptible.  The duration of isolation depends on duration of communicability of disease and effect of chemotherapy on infectivity .  E.g. chicken pox until all lesions crusted ,usually about 6 days after onset of rash.
  • 12. Treatment  The objectives of treatment are- 1. To kill the infectious agent when it is still in the reservoir before it is disseminated. 2. Reduce the communicability of disease. 3. Cut short the duration of illness and 4. Prevent development of secondary cases
  • 13. Quarantine  Defined as “ the limitation of freedom of movement of such well person or domestic animal exposed to communicable disease for a period of time not longer than the longest usual incubation period of disease in such manner as to effective contact with those not so exposed”  3 types- Absolute Modified Segregation
  • 14. Interruption of transmission  Means changing some components of man’s environment to prevent the infective agent from a patient or carrier from entering the body of susceptible person.  E.g. simple chlorination to complex water treatment will prevent water borne disease.  Vector control.  Personal hygiene.
  • 15. Active & Passive Immunization  Active - strengthening of host defence ; control of some infectious disease is solely based on active immunization- e.g. polio , tetanus, diphtheria and measles.  Passive – 3 types of preparations are available 1. Normal human Ig 2. Specific (hyperimmune) human immunoglobulin 3. Antisera or antitoxin
  • 17. Chemoprophylaxis  Implies the protection from, or prevention of, disease.  Achieved by – 1. Causal prophylaxis-early elimination of invading or migrating causal agent. 2. Clinical prophylaxis- prevention of clincal symptom.
  • 18. Non specific measures  Mainly interrupt pathways of transmission.  Improvements on the Quality of Life (eg better housing, water supply, nutrition, education)  Formulation of legislative measures and integrated program.  Have played a dominant role in decline of diseases like TB, Cholera, Leprosy and Child Mortality.
  • 19. Surveillance  SURVEILLANCE must follow control measures. Defined as “ the continuous scrutiny of all aspects of occurrence and spread of disease that are pertinent to effective control.”  The ultimate objective of surveillance is “PREVENTION”.
  • 20. Types of surveillance  4 types 1. Individual surveillance- surveillance of infected person until they are no longer a significant risk to other individual.. 2. Local population surveillance- surveillance of malaria. 3. National population surveillance- surveillance of small pox after it has been eradicated. 4. International surveillance- WHO maintains surveillance of important diseases like influenza, malaria ,polio.
