Public Health in Singapore has come a long way since 1948. From curbing the spread of infectious diseases like malaria and TB to the prevention and control of chronic diseases such as diabetes, we have made much progress over the past 60 years. Together, the public health community has placed Singapore on the global health map building on the strong foundation the pioneers of public health has laid since post-war Singapore.
But more needs to done as we continue to face increasingly complex and dynamic public health challenges. Together, we must flame that passion for prevention in the next generation of public health professional who can and care to make a difference to the health and lives of populations around the world.
