'Prevent' basically means 'stop'. If you prevent something, you stop it from happening - often before it starts. You can prevent something, prevent something from happening or prevent someone from doing something. For example: The arrival of the police prevented crime. Or: Losing my passport prevented me from flying. Or: I prevented her from slapping me! Wow! Now 'avoid', basically means 'miss'. If you avoid something, you try to make it miss you. For example: I avoided meeting my ex. Or: I avoided the slap easily!
