Primary prevention takes place before a person develops the health outcome (usually disease) and in fact aims to prevent the health outcome. Success of primary prevention can be shown through indicators such as incidence and prevalence of disease going down. Primary prevention usually targets the reservoir or source of infection, or aims to block the transmission route. Yet it could also strengthen the immune system, such as through immunisation.

However, there is no link to a chapter that explains the methods of case finding. Perhaps this would be good to consider
