This section hosts guidelines, manuals and toolkits to strengthen public health practice.
The life cycle approach in public health is a concept that emphasizes prevention of and intervention at every stage of life - pregnancy and childbirth, infancy, early childhood, later childhood, adolescence, early adulthood, middle adulthood, and later adulthood. This approach helps to reduce morbidity and mortality, and improve health during key stages of life for all individuals. It also provides a more comprehensive vision of health and its determinants - leading to user-specific development of primary healthcare and universal health coverage. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated risks that different vulnerable groups at different stages of their lifecycle, have faced, creating unequal socio-economic dynamics. Thus, proving how important is the life cycle approach in the public health sector.
