The aim of this study was to find the relationship among public health awareness, preventive health and curative healthcare. Survey approach was used, and data was collected by distributing questionnaires. Total 200 questionnaires were distributed, and 169 completed questionnaires were received and used in analysis of data. Exploratory factor analysis and reliability analysis were run. Correlation and regression analysis were used to test hypotheses. T-test was used to find the mean difference. SPSS 25 and AMOS-SEM 18 were used for analysis. Structural model was developed and validated in the study. Factor loadings of EFA and confirmatory factor analysis CFA are also reported. It is found that all the variables are related with each other significantly and public health awareness predicted preventive and curative health significantly. T-test results are also reported there is difference in mean score of literate and illiterate employees. It is concluded that health awareness has significant impact on preventive and curative health. Preventive health is found more dominant than curative health in the structural model. It means that preventive health is more important and curative health is overlooked so there is need to give attention to curative health in further studies. This study is primary study on public health awareness in Qassim region.
