  1. Primary prevention - to prevent the initiation of illness through the reduction of risk factors and the promotion of wellness.
  2. Secondary prevention - to arrest the development of illness through early detection of illness and the promotion of wellness.
  3. Tertiary prevention - to minimize the consequences of illness and disability through the promotion of wellness.
