FY 2011-2012

Balaji Sadasivan - Healthcare Building Capability Project
Building capabilities of Intermediate and Long-Term Care (ILTC) in Singapore
Partner: Agency for Integrated Care (AIC)

The Balaji Sadasivan - Healthcare Building Capability Project was established in 2010 to help the long-term care sector meet the needs of a rapidly-ageing population. Administered by the Agency for Integrated Cares (AIC), 20 study awards have since been approved to support students pursuing diplomas in physiotherapy, occupational therapy and nursing as well as nursing under the National Institute of Technical Education Certificate (NITEC) programme. Recipients were chosen for their academic performance, community service and their passion to serve in the long-term care sector. Upon graduation, they would work in institutions providing long-term care such as community hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centres, and hospices.

Given the encouraging response, Temasek Cares extended its support for the programme with a new grant for academic year 2012. More study awards were made available for students training to be therapists and nurses. Study awards were also made available for students in the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) who are pursuing their NITEC in nursing. Together, the awards contribute to ongoing efforts to strengthen the manpower capabilities in the long-term care sector.
