Singapore and London researchers collaborate on public health
SINGAPORE - Two important universities are teaming-up to face the challenge of the most significant threats to global health today. The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and the Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health in Singapore are now combining efforts to fight infectious diseases such as pandemic influenza and treatment-resistant malaria and the growing threat of non-communicable disease such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. The London School’s Professor Richard Coker, now based in Singapore, and Professor Chia Kee Seng, Dean of the Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health, discuss the importance of their collaboration began in 2011 and now in full swing.
