Free medical consultations will be offered to French people at “three ages of life, 25 years old, 45 years old and 65 years old”, in order to strengthen the prevention component of the French health system, announced Sunday the Minister of Health, François Braun, in an interview with the JDD.
We are entering the era of prevention with this measure which will be incorporated into the next social security financing bill, explains the minister, who insists: we are going to take better care of children, who benefit from 20 examinations up to 16 years, but also follow these generations during their lifetime.
For adults aged 25, it will be a question of taking stock of vaccines, their physical activity, possible addictions or difficulties linked to the start of their professional life. They will also be alerted to the need to have a doctor and the cardiovascular risk.
At age 45, the consultation will focus on the need to take part in screening for breast, colon or prostate cancer and will make it possible to assess physical activity and any mental health problems.
Finally, 65 years will be discussed about the prevention of loss of autonomy, screening for cancers and all diseases that can be prevented.

This five-year term will be that of a vast reform of our health and prevention policy, Mr. Braun had promised at the beginning of September during a trip to Marseille.
