Student Screening Services

Singapore’s schoolchildren have dedicated health resources to tap on. The Health Promotion Board (HPB) gives them ready access to medical and dental care. Besides offering health screening and immunisation at school visits, HPB also conducts health education and health promotion programmes on healthy lifestyle practices. HPB’s Student Health Centre, which generally provides preventive and screening services, follows up with the children referred from the school visits above.
