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.

The Ministry of Health (MOH) manages Singapore’s public healthcare system to ensure that good and affordable basic medical services are available to all Singaporeans. We are committed to medical excellence, promoting good health and reducing illness, and ensuring that Singaporeans have access to good and affordable healthcare that is appropriate to their needs. At MOH, we work closely with other government agencies, as well as public and private healthcare stakeholders to manage the public healthcare system. The work in MOH is multi-faceted, covering many areas such as system design and governance, health services and infrastructure planning and development, healthcare financing, manpower planning and training, healthcare regulation, public health, and healthcare performance and quality standards.
