Gift of Sight
Support Campaign Now
Glaucoma, the 'silent thief of sight', accounts for 40% of blindness in Singapore. It damages your vision so slowly that you do not notice the gradual loss until it is too late.
You can help many others keep their vision. Your donation will empower research and innovation at NHG Eye Institute to help reduce vision loss due to eye diseases common in Singapore.
Join us to reduce vision loss. Fund vision, find sight.
Do you know that in Singapore, there is an average of 4 limb amputations each day due to diabetes? And 1 in 2 heart attack victims had diabetes?
At Tan Tock Seng Hospital, our researchers are developing a method to identify patients who are at high risk of developing such complications. This allows doctors to take preventive measures early.
Fight Infectious Diseases
The current COVID-19 pandemic has affected the lives of many. The National Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCID), a NHG institution, is at the forefront of our fight against COVID-19 and many other infectious diseases. As we fight this ongoing pandemic, we face other infectious diseases such as Antimicrobial resistance – a serious health threat as microorganisms become resistant to the drugs designed to destroy them. NCID is finding solutions to save lives from these infectious diseases.
Currently, it is unsure if COVID-19 can spread by aerosol transmission or even via air-conditioner in a confined space.
Further understanding of COVID-19 transmission is needed for good infection control practices and advice to the public. Scientists believe that environmental contamination was an important factor in the disease's transmission, but its extent is unclear.
