Health Promotion Board’s (HPB) vision is to build a nation of healthy people. We aim to empower residents in Singapore to attain optimal health, increase the quality and years of healthy life and prevent illnesses, disability and premature death.

The Innovation Office drives the design and implementation of National Healthy Population projects, the creation of a nation-wide platform to collect and contribute real-time and personalised biometric and wellness data, through smart devices such as wearables, artificial intelligence and machine learning.

The Innovation Office has the ambition to transform and lead the next-generation public health & health promotion, pioneering capabilities with data and technology companies to front cutting-edge global-first co-innovations.
