Assistant Director (Policy Research & Evaluation)

Agency: Ministry of Health
Job no.: 518511
Work type: Permanent/Contract
Location: Singapore
Categories:Statistics, Economics/Statistics, Research and Analysis

The Ministry of Health’s (MOH) vision is to champion a healthy nation with our people – to live well, live long and with peace of mind. As an open country constantly exposed to an interconnected world, Singapore faces complex issues in public healthcare. MOH constantly grapples with new challenges brought on by an increasingly globalised world, a rapidly ageing population and rising expectations. MOH’s responses to these challenges include preventing and managing the outbreak of diseases such as SARS and Influenza A (H1N1), designing a healthcare system that delivers care in an integrated and effective manner, growing the capacity and capabilities within the sector, and managing healthcare inflation.

As an MOH officer, you will be involved in formulating and implementing policies that guide Singapore’s healthcare ecosystem. You will work alongside a team with varied skills and backgrounds, but with the common goals of (i) promoting good health and reducing illnesses; (ii) ensuring that Singaporeans have access to good and affordable healthcare; and (iii) pursuing medical excellence. Your work will have far-reaching impact on the health and lives of Singaporeans.


You will play an important role to undertake objective and rigorous healthcare policy research and economic evaluation using robust economic and statistical techniques, in support of MOH Division’s healthcare policy reviews and strategy development. This includes the projections of healthcare service capacity demand using an integrated planning and projection approach.
