The interagency Child and Maternal Health & Well-being (CAMH) Taskforce in Singapore has completed its Strategy and Action Plan and published its report.
The CAMH Strategy and Action Plan set out three thrusts and nine recommendations, which have been translated into 48 initiatives, to drive better health outcomes for children and their families, and maximise the development potential of the young. 28 of these initiatives have already been implemented, with the remainder to be progressively implemented over the next two years. 
The CAMH Taskforce was convened in January 2021 to explore ways to strengthen holistic support for the health and well-being of children from birth to 18 years old, and their families. Led by Minister for Social and Family Development and Second Minister for Health, Masagos Zulkifli, and supported by representatives from over 20 agencies across the health, social and education sectors, the Taskforce is part of the government’s larger efforts to address individual health needs and modifiable risk factors beyond the health domain.
The Taskforce has conducted a comprehensive review of evidence-based research with experts, and consulted families and frontline officers from the health, social and education domains to identify gaps and discuss ways to enhance support for children and their families.
