Innovation Fund.

The two categories of preventive health that the Innovation Fund will support are:

PRIMARY PREVENTION

Is concerned with preventing the onset of disease; it aims to reduce the incidence of disease. It involves interventions that are applied before there is any evidence of disease or injury.

SECONDARY PREVENTION

Is concerned with detecting a disease in its earliest stages, before symptoms appear, and intervening to slow or stop its progression.
