Prevention and Disease Control:
“Prevention is better than cure” goes the age old saying. Rightly so because a majority of disease can be prevented through regular screening, vaccination, proper nutrition & regular exercise. Not all infants receive all recommended vaccines. Large numbers of children from the lower socioeconomic strata remain under immunized, leaving the potential for outbreaks of disease looming large. In our mobile society, over a million people travel to and from countries, where many vaccine preventable disease are prevalent. Many adults are also under-immunized due to a general lack of awareness and thereby are unable to protect themselves against infectious disease.
Bio-Services works closely with healthcare providers and public health agencies to improve and sustain immunization coverage. We continuously engage in raising public awareness about prevention and disease control. Bio-Services also encourages healthcare providers to promote screening and vaccinations within their communities by increasing awareness about their importance.
