The Singapore Ministry of Education (MOE) formulates and implements education policies and programs in consultation with its stakeholders. These policies and programs aim to help all students discover their talents, realise their potential, and develop a passion for learning that lasts through life. MOE also oversees the development and management of the Government and Government-aided primary schools, secondary schools and junior colleges. Please visit the Ministry of Education website for more information.
The Ministry of Health (MOH) is the arm of the Singapore Government responsible for healthcare policies and the quality of healthcare services in Singapore. It is an innovative and people-centred organisation, committed to medical excellence, the promotion of good health and the reduction of illness. Through MOH, the Government manages the public health care system to ensure that good and affordable medical services are available to all Singaporeans. This is achieved through the provision of subsidised medical services while promoting individual responsibility for their health and healthcare needs. Safety nets are also provided to ensure that no Singaporean is denied access to the health care system because of their inability to pay.
