What are the 3 levels of health care?

Primary health care is about preventing illness or disability. This would include Well Women's Clinics, child immunisation programs, malaria prevention and that sort of thing.

Secondary health care is where a patient is ill and is treated, usually by nurses and doctors. Treatment of diabetes, high blood pressure, bronchitis and minor fractures are some examples of secondary health care.

Tertiary health care is where things have gone wrong and long term care and rehabilitation programs are used, for instance if someone had a double amputation, they would need artificial limbs and physiotherapy and possibly adaptations to the home.
