SIF-TTSH Collaborate to Raise Standards of Medical Care in Developing Communities
Singapore International Foundation (SIF) and Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) ink a five-year Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), formalising their longstanding partnership and commitment to collaborate in meaningful healthcare projects.
Co-signed by SIF Executive Director Ms Jean Tan and TTSH Chief Executive Officer Dr Eugene Fidelis Soh on 9 October, the MOU would form the bedrock for the joint development of specialist volunteer projects in healthcare. These capacity-building projects are designed to achieve sustainable development in neighbouring countries such as Vietnam and China. They include the areas of Emergency Medicine, Renal Medicine, and Geriatric and Palliative Medicine.
“The SIF is honoured to partner TTSH in our mission to connect communities and enable collaborations for positive change. Healthcare is an area where Singapore medical professionals can contribute, alongside their counterparts overseas, to help raise standards of medical care in developing communities. We look forward to a partnership that will contribute to long-term positive development in the region,” shared Ms Jean Tan, SIF Executive Director.
“Our collaboration with SIF paves the way for humanitarian capacity-building and collaboration in the region, with a community of practice approach. We aspire to build relationships with region so as to learn from one another and work on joint projects. It also provides good development opportunities for our staff personally and professionally,” said Dr Eugene Fidelis Soh, Chief Executive Officer of TTSH.
The SIF and TTSH have already made headway in developing potential projects in Hanoi, Vietnam and Yunnan, China, affirming the commitment of both parties to enable collaborations for good. Moving forward, both organisations will collectively work toward facilitating co-learning opportunities in development and leadership programmes for medical communities. The collaborative nature of the projects would also serve as a platform to foster greater intercultural understanding between Singaporean healthcare professionals and their international counterparts.Back
