Agency: Ministry of Health
Job no.: 522935
Work type: Permanent/Contract
Location: Singapore
Categories:Healthcare, Social and Community Development

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.

Responsibilities

You will drive, review and coordinate the development and implementation of policies on ageing in Singapore with the aim of ensuring our seniors can lead a healthy, active and meaningful life as they age. You will work with other government agencies and providers to implement recommendations from the Action Plan for Successful Ageing which aims to provide a holistic whole-of-nation approach to address the needs of our ageing population. This could include developing opportunities for lifelong learning under the National Silver Academy, encouraging senior volunteerism under the Silver Volunteer Fund, and implementing community befriending for socially isolated seniors. Besides policy, you will also work through the operational details of its implementation, such as public communications.
