CEO's message

Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) website.

Whether you are here with us as a consumer, industry partner, blood donor, local or overseas regulatory partner, or future employee, we hope that this visit will provide you with a better understanding of our philosophy, priorities and practices to safeguard public health and safety.

Established in 2001, HSA is a multidisciplinary scientific and regulatory agency that serves three key functions to protect and advance national health and safety. We are the national regulator for drugs, innovative therapeutics, medical devices and health-related products, ensuring they are well-regulated to high standards of safety, quality and efficacy. As the national blood service, we secure the nation’s blood supply by ensuring a safe and adequate blood supply for public and private hospitals. We also provide the national expertise in forensic medicine, forensic science and analytical chemistry testing to serve the administration of justice and safeguard public health.

Through our extensive network of partners and our dedicated and professional staff, we have grown in stature - both at home and abroad - as a science-based and science-led agency. By advancing our thought leadership and research capabilities over the years, we have explored new frontiers in our areas of expertise, participating actively in many global, regional and local networks and initiatives.

Our world today has grown even more volatile and unpredictable. As we navigate the challenges in our second decade with the highest scientific, professional and ethical standards, we will always remain true to our core values. This resolve and shared commitment across HSA will take us into more fruitful chapters, and closer to our vision of being a leading, innovative authority protecting and advancing national health and safety.

Thank you for your interest in our work, and please visit us again for more updates. In the meantime, we also look forward to hearing from you on how we can serve you better.

Dr Choong May Ling, Mimi
Chief Executive Officer
