​​Maternal and child health yields significant health returns for the entire population. SolHEALTH strategies often include interventions that address critical maternal and child health issues by maximizing well-woman, well-child and well-baby visits, and improving pre-natal and post-partum care for both women, infants and children.

​Finally, SolHEALTH supports health professional education and training ​at the undergraduate and graduate levels. By doing so, SolHEALTH attempts to ensure the development of a health professional workforce that is capable of leveraging the latest technologies and contributing to the data that furthers health promotion, disease prevention and the incorporation of sustainable, evidence-based approaches to all medical disciplines.​

SolHEALTH focuses on both disease-specific interventions as well as those that improve healthcare systems and public health infrastructures. These often include maximizing immunizations, screening and health maintenance encounters that have been proven to yield the greatest results. SolHEALTH specifically aims to reduce the burden of relevant communicable and non-communicable diseases and improve lifestyle practices though education of healthcare providers and the public, as well as the deployment of proven, sustainable technologies.

Primary Prevention

Primary prevention uses education and specific interventions designed to maintain an already existing healthy state of well-being. Thus, primary prevention seeks to increase the resiliency of healthy individuals and prevent disease and injury from occurring. Specific interventions such as immunizations, as well as the adoption of healthy and safe lifestyles have proven highly effective in maintaining health and preventing disease. 

Clinical and population research, new technologies and evidence-based policies can reduce or eliminate major population health burdens. These include domestic violence, anti-microbial resistance, injuries associated with motor vehicles, bicycles, sports and firearms, pediatric poisonings and drowning, nosocomial infections, and parasitic diseases.

Secondary Prevention 

Secondary prevention involves identifying diseases in individuals before they produce any symptoms. This consists of using a variety of screening modalities designed to identify the presence of diseases at very early stages so that they can be cured before they impair the functioning of individuals. Properly instituted, this strategy increases the likelihood of maintaining health and extending lifespans. 

Focus Areas

Tertiary Prevention

Tertiary prevention is treating diseases so as to prevent their complications, thus improving the quality of life and lifespan of individuals. This is accomplished when a system is in place to provide primary healthcare that is comprehensive (sufficient to meet the needs of 80% of all patients at first contact), continuous (provided by doctors who know the patient), and coordinated (provided within and across specialties).
