Defining personalised prevention

During the PROPHET kick-off meeting in Rome, September 2022, PROPHET partners worked on the definition of “personalised prevention” as follows:

  • “Personalised prevention aims to prevent onset, progression and recurrence of diseases through the adoption of targeted interventions that consider the biological information*, environmental and behavioural characteristics, socio-economic and cultural context of individuals.
  • This should be timely, effective and equitable in order to maintain the best possible balance in lifetime health trajectory.”

* e.g. genetic and other biomarkers, demographics, health conditions
