This broader definition has allowed for many different levels of treatment, diagnosis, and preventive measures. Unfortunately, a lack of a standard definition has resulted in differing levels of services and programs that can help improve the health of any population.

Even the most prevalent diseases like diabetes and hypertension are not spread quickly through the general population.
