Abstract: Whenever we speak of Health services, we normally speak about prevention and cure. This implies that one is distinct from the other, that they are two different branches of work. We also say that prevention is better than cure. This is all quite valid. But we must ensure that where health is concerned the distinction between prevention and cure does not distract us from the continuity of attention that everyone needs where health is involved. My first point, therefore, is that the emphasis in the Health Sector should not be whether to look for this or that specific service, but rather to examine if these services are integrated or not, and if they provide continuous assistance to the individual and his family during one's lifetime.
