During the screening, ten criteria methods should be used to identify the health program’s strengths and weaknesses (Klingler et al., 2017). First, screening should target a disease that has severe consequences on the population. That way, it is easy to justify the importance of screening. Secondly, the condition should have a high prevalence among the targeted people (Klingler et al., 2017). Thirdly, screening should be conducted in such a way that it can disease state that looks like a disease but does not affect the patient life (Klingler et al., 2017). Fourthly, the screening process should be accurate in detecting the preclinical phase. Screening should detect more true-positives cases than the opposite. Fifthly, screening should allow the detection of disease before the critical point. That way, it will be easy to provide the patient with the needed attention (Klingler et al., 2017). Sixthly, screening should not cause morbidity. The safety of the patient should be a priority. Seventhly, screening should not be an expensive or only accessible small number of affluent people (Klingler et al., 2017). It should be affordable to all people. Eighty, it is essential to ensure that effective treatment exists (Klingler et al., 2017). That way, the screening will be meaningful to individuals and improve patient outcomes. Ninthly, treatment should be applied before symptoms of the disease become serious (Klingler et al., 2017). The aim should be to ensure that screening is cost-effective. Lastly, the treatment should not be too risky. Risky or toxic treatment may destroy the long-term benefits of the treatment (Klingler et al., 2017).
