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 work with key Government partners such as the Central Provident Fund Board and the Agency for Integrated Care, as well as private insurers, to review and operationalise schemes targeted at helping Singaporeans prepare for their long-term care needs, especially in old age. These include Singapore’s national long-term care insurance schemes – the new CareShield Life and the existing ElderShield schemes, as well as the new ElderFund scheme and the existing Interim Disability Assistance Scheme for the Elderly (IDAPE), which are Government assistance schemes targeted at severe disability.
