Translating Research into Highest Quality Patient Care

Predictive and Preventive Healthcare (CP2): Better Health at Affordable Cost

This is a joint research programme between NHG and NTU/LKCMedicine to understand disease factors unique to Asian populations. It aims to proactively prescribing care and interventions before the start of illnesses.  Cohort studies will be conducted, both in the general population and in the early disease cohorts. Such studies will examine psychosocial, lifestyle, metabolic, genetic and environmental factors associated with chronic disease development and progression. The knowledge obtained from these longitudinal cohort studies will allow us to better design innovative preventive strategies to improve health and, at the same time, reduce healthcare burden.
