Abstract

“Why is personalized medicine relevant to public health?” The extraordinary accomplishment of decoding the human genome, together with the technological advancement of the later part of the 20th century, has strong implications for the health care, as it provides the opportunity to transform its delivery health from a disease-focused model to one that is personalized, predictive, proactive, precise, and patientcentred. Personalized health care can be broadly defined as a customization of the medical provision that accommodates individual differences in all stages in the process, from prevention, to diagnosis and treatment, to posttreatment followup.
