Video Interviews

We were able to conduct a large number of interviews in a relatively short period of time thanks to the kind support of our interviewees, as well as the tireless work of our video team from CTV Productions, School of Film & Media Studies, Ngee Ann Polytechnic. Because of time constraints, we could not interview everyone that had contributed significantly to the control of infectious diseases in Singapore, or who had witnessed the changing landscape of infectious diseases in Singapore from past to present. Please feel free to provide feedback or share interesting anecdotes / stories at our Feedback page.
