HIGHLIGHTS

Project Silver Screen

As Singapore’s population faces a silver wave, early intervention is more critical than ever.

Project Silver Screen is a collaboration between the Ministry of Health and Temasek Foundation Cares that brings functional screening to Singaporeans aged 60 years and above to help detect age-related decline in their vision, hearing and oral health.

Timely intervention in these areas will enhance the seniors’ quality of life. They can also get access to assistive devices, such as spectacles, hearing aids and dentures, at affordable costs.

To date, 12 corporate sponsors, including Temasek, have contributed more than $35 million towards this initiative.
