HPB encourages Singaporeans to get healthy together

'Let’s get healthy together', this year’s National Healthy Lifestyle Campaign (NHLC) 2010 by DDB Singapore is aimed to inspire Singapore residents to take small and enjoyable steps with friends, family or colleagues to fight obesity together.

The DDB-developed campaign builds on the momentum generated in the past year which focusses on getting Singapore residents to be aware of their Body Mass Index (BMI).

Singapore, similar to other developed countries the world over, faces an uphill challenge of fighting a rising prevalence of obesity.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has also declared obesity to be a global epidemic and has been spearheading a series of consultations and awareness campaigns to raise awareness of the rising trend.

Although Singapore’s obesity statistics are not as high compared to that of other developed countries, the Health Promotion Board has taken a proactive approach to address the obesity issue before encountering any severe consequences for public health.

“HPB recognises that achieving a healthy lifestyle with good dietary habits and regular physical activity can be made easier and more enjoyable with the support from family and friends,” said Lam Pin Woon, CEO, HPB and co-chairperson of the NHLC 2010 organising committee.

"After all, a healthy lifestyle helps us enjoy the benefits of what we work so hard for, and ultimately builds a brighter future for all of us," Lam added.
