Proceedings of Singapore Healthcare

The Proceedings of Singapore Healthcare is an international, peer-reviewed journal that publishes quality research on all aspects of healthcare and the biomedical sciences, with an emphasis on research of direct clinical relevance.
The journal aims to improve the quality of care to patients by informing and stimulating discussion among health professionals. Although the journal has a geographical focus on healthcare and biomedical research within Southeast Asia, we encourage contributions from all parts of the world.
