– A society that does not take proper care of its health finds it harder to get through an epidemic such as the coronavirus outbreak we are currently facing. A higher number of hospitalizations or serious complications are often the result of an accumulation of diseases from which the patient suffers, being unaware of it. "Prevention 40 PLUS" is thus intended to help restore health after the epidemic, but also to prepare Poles for such events in the future. So let's take care of our health and take advantage of the proposed prevention project – says Health Minister Adam Niedzielski.

This will generate an order for a gender-appropriate examination package. For those who do not use the form placed in the IKP, support is provided by a consultant on the Home Medical Care hotline.
