Health and Social SupportTo enable every Singaporean to lead a dignified and fulfilling life, and to better care for themselves and for others around them.
Our population is ageing rapidly and birth rates remain low. These demographic changes place growing demands on our healthcare system and caregivers. At the same time, some lower-income families face complex and interrelated challenges. We need to continually understand the needs of our society, and provide greater assurance in healthcare, family well-being and social assistance. We must work together for a better tomorrow.
The Care Pillar will explore how we as a society can empower families and individuals, by focusing on the following shifts:
• From healthcare provision to population health – a society where Singaporeans are empowered to live longer and healthier, and age with confidence
• From support measures for parenthood to a supportive environment for strong families – a resilient society that values family well-being, supports caregiving and gives every child a good start
• From social assistance to social empowerment – many helping hands working together to uplift families and individuals in need, and to provide opportunities for all to progress in life
All of us must do our part. Let us build a stronger society, and forge a more inclusive and caring Singapore - a Singapore where we nurture and build lives together.
