Quaternary Prevention Manifest / 5 languages versions

Quaternary prevention, present and future.
To the memory of Mario G. Acuña

“Quaternary prevention (P4) is the collection of health activities that attenuate or avoid the consequences of unnecessary or excessive interventions in the health system, mostly originated in the medicalization and the commercial approach promoted by interests opposed to those of the patients. As a result, we’re not only facing the health system but also the economic and social systems. We advocate for a scientific medicine, one that is humane and ethical, accessible to
those who need it and based on equity. Therefore, our actions are necessarily political and their content is democratic.” (fragment)

On the WICC web page are available five languages PDF versions.

Background and development of the idea

Since the beginning of the work on Latin American networks on Quaternary Prevention, it has been necessary to provide a database and resources with the objective of disseminating the concept and its application. This idea has been in our minds and discussions for a long time. From the first face-to-face meeting of the Special Interest Group on Quaternary Prevention and Overmedicalization of WONCA (November 2016, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), we decided to undertake the implementation of this idea. The current platform has been designed to be augmented from various sources and shared with whomever necessary. The documents and materials that are uploaded to the platform can be shared through an Excel document. The entries have been coded with the multilingual terminology of general practice and family medicine, Q-Codes (http://3cgp.docpatient.net/ ).2
