Healthy Campus Initiative

Healthy Campus Initiative (HCI) is a joint project between the Ministry of Health (MOH) Office for Healthcare Transformation (MOHT) and NUS which aims to improve the landscapes of health and wellness in the campus. HCI aims to implement an integrated, comprehensive set of measures targeted at fostering a culture that values health, an environment that makes healthy living the default and easy and choice, and a supportive Operating System where health is considered in all university policies (C-E-O approach).
