Abstract:   (4717 Views)
Primordial prevention is an important aspect of the health system, but its role is less known. It is the most basic level of the health prevention pyramid and has important role in control of cardiovascular diseases. Primordial prevention focuses on creating and maintaining conditions that minimize the emergence of risk factors of disease. Healthy behaviors and lifestyle modifications are considered to be the key interventions in primordial prevention.
