Established in 2001, the Health Promotion Board (HPB) has a vision to build a nation of healthy and happy people.

New programmes will also be initiated over time to address health concerns among the community.

A healthy nation comprises people who can embrace life fully. HPB is committed to helping residents in Singapore attain optimal health through our health promotion and disease prevention programmes.

The HPB Corporate Marketing & Communications Division handles a wide array of communications efforts, leading the national effort to build a nation of health and happy people through the promotion of health excellence and empowerment of individuals to take ownership of their health.
