  • Golden Lecture of Prevention

    The value of primary prevention was known to mankind for many centuries. Unfortunately, even today its benefits are not always recognized due to preoccupation with high tech modern medicine.

    We, at the Supercourse project (, decided to… develop the “Golden Lecture of Prevention” to illustrate and commemorate the role of prevention in continuing to make our planet healthier.

    Supercourse, funded by the National Library of Medicine, NIH, is an Internet based library of lectures on prevention and public health, shared for free by 10,000 members from 151 countries in the Global Health Network.
