Care at NUH

Community Family and Child Health


The Division of Community Family and Child Health seeks to integrate services and partnerships to support and address the health needs of our children and their families beyond the realm of healthcare.

Through the various programmes, the division is committed to a family-focused, life-course approach to tackle cross-cutting issues through multi-agency collaboration, to create measurable outcomes and impact that will benefit multi-generations.

As a division of the National University Centre for Women and Children (NUWoC), we provide thought leadership for community family and child health across NUHS, constantly striving for better outcomes for our patients and their families, from pre-conception to postnatal care, from newborn to adolescence. 

Our Programmes

With an integrated, accessible and affordable approach to service, our programmes seek to enhance support for vulnerable groups from hospital to community.

Family NEXUS Community Hubs @ NUP

Sited at Keat Hong Community Club and Choa Chu Kang Polyclinic, Family NEXUS provides an individualised concierge service to support families in navigating the social-health system at a single stop.


As a key partner of KidSTART Singapore, NUH KidSTART supports eligible pregnant mothers and their families prenatally and postnatally through home visits and follow-ups by a team of nurses, case management officers, medical social workers and dietitians.

Health and Development Support in Preschool Partnerships (HEADS-UPP)

A partnership with Care Corner Singapore and pre-schools, HEADS-UPP aims to support children from families in the bottom 20% in terms of household income by leveraging childcare teachers and social workers for better health outcomes.

Family and Child Health @ NUP

With a family-child triad model, this programme aims to provide screening with anticipatory guidance for both mother and child, offered at timepoints coinciding with the child's vaccination and development screening visits.

Sleep Easy Programme (SLeEP) @ NUP

SLeEP aims to enhance sleep in infants and mothers, focusing on education, anticipatory guidance, screening and early detection of sleep problems at routine post-natal follow-up of babies, together with prompt and appropriate intervention where required.

Breastfeeding Triple Support (BTS) Programme @ NUP

BTS seeks to link the three sections of healthcare – hospital, polyclinics and the community, to provide a continuum of breastfeeding support for mothers in their breastfeeding journey. 

Our Partners

To provide care and intervention for women experiencing emotional distress and mental health issues, we have also partnered with the NUH Department of Psychological Medicine in the Promoting Parental Emotional Health to Enhance Child Learning (PRoPEL II) and Women Enhanced Health Plus (WEHS+) programme.
