TAL Health Sense
The rewards of taking care of your health
TAL Health Sense currently involves two kinds of prevention activities:
- Primary prevention, focusing on preventing a condition before it occurs, For example, having a healthy BMI can prevent conditions such as diabetes mellitus. Our TAL Health Sense program is an example of primary prevention.
- Secondary prevention, which is concerned with detecting a condition early to improve health outcomes. This typically occurs through preventative screening programs such as regular blood glucose monitoring to identify diabetes mellitus at an early stage. Our TAL Health Sense Plus program is an example of Secondary prevention.
