It takes a whole kampung to enable a person to maintain good health and self-care in the comfort of their homes. As our population ages and the burden of chronic diseases rises, we recognise the need for close collaborations with our health and social care partners in the community to enable neighbourhood-based care to thrive.
Launched in 2017, Centre for Health Activation (CHA) was set up to focus on Activation, Research and Training – also known as the ART of CHA. Its vision is to drive activation and build One Community of Carers (i.e. patients, caregivers, volunteers, health and social care partners) who are equipped with the skills, knowledge and confidence to self-care and care for their loved ones and others in the community.
