The Ministry of Health (MOH) has outlined its vision for all Singaporeans: live well and live long, with peace of mind. Minister for Health Mr Gan Kim Yong said the ministry will embark on major shifts to Singapore’s healthcare system in several areas.
MOH’s first priority is to help Singaporeans stay healthy through the promotion of healthier food and lifestyle choices, and disease screening. "We will expand these efforts and embark on new ones to move towards the goal of developing health promoting communities. Singaporeans will be empowered through information, technology, and smart behavioural nudges to eat healthily, keep active and take charge of their health, while industries and employers will be encouraged to provide supportive environments for healthy behaviour," said Mr Gan.
