Established in 2001, the Health Promotion Board (HPB)'s vision is to build a nation of healthy people.
While residents in Singapore today enjoy good health with high life expectancy and low mortality rates, we want to further improve our health status and continue to enjoy good health as we age.
To achieve this, we serve as the main driver for national health promotion and disease prevention programmes. Our goal is to increase the quality and years of healthy life and prevent illness, disability and premature death.
We implement programmes that reach out to the population, specifically children, adults and the elderly. These programmes include health and dental services for school children, breast and cervical screening, AIDS education, childhood injury prevention, mental health education, myopia prevention, physical activity, smoking control, nutrition, osteoporosis education and workplace health promotion. New programmes will also be initiated over time to address health concerns among the community.
We have also been harnessing technology and insights to habituate Singaporeans towards healthier lifestyles. Together with our partners, we pushed out new technology-enabled solutions to level up its precision in public health intervention and grow the prevalence of healthy living.
