Actually, already in February 2015, minister of Health, Gan Kim Yong already admitted that Singapore's investment in preventive health was sorely lacking:

Empower consumers with holistic approach to healthcare: Gan Kim Yong
SINGAPORE — To address the challenges of non-communicable diseases, Singapore needs to move upstream and find ways to keep the population healthy, said Health Minister Gan Kim Yong at the Ministerial Meeting on Universal Health Coverage today (11 Feb2015).
BY SIAU MING EN - 11FEBRUARY 2015.


SINGAPORE — To address the challenges of non-communicable diseases, Singapore needs to move upstream and find ways to keep the population healthy, said Health Minister Gan Kim Yong at the Ministerial Meeting on Universal Health Coverage today (11 Feb).
Speaking during the Ministerial Roundtable discussion, which involved 17 panelists from all over the world, Mr Gan said there was “a lot of scope” for Singapore to move upstream.
“If you look around, our investments in health promotion and diseases prevention, I think... it is actually significantly lower than the amount of money we spend on treating diseases,” he said.
The two-day conference on universal health coverage and its challenges was organised by the Ministry of Health and attended by health ministers, senior officials and experts from around the world.
We need to take a holistic approach towards health promotion, taking into account how can we empower consumers so that they make the right choice, said Mr Gan.
Necessary information should be given to consumers, said Mr Gan, such as how much calories they are taking in and what constitutes a healthy lifestyle.
The authorities can also look at government regulations, taxation and financial structures to encourage and shape the behaviours of consumers, he said.
Singapore is also experimenting with the idea of creating an eco-system that is “pro-health”, he said.
Mr Gan added: “We are finding ways to make healthy living the default way of life.”
For instance, he cited the example of how the “default drink” in Hong Kong contains no sugar but consumers will still have the option to add sugar or milk to their drinks.
“You’re not removing the choice, but making (the) healthy choice the default choice,” he said.
The need for industry players to take on bigger responsibilities and deliver healthier choices was also one of the themes that emerged during the roundtable discussion today.
Dr Ko Wing-man, the secretary for Food and Health in Hong Kong, for instance, said they have already been engaging local brands to voluntarily reduce the salt or sugar levels in their products.

Have you signed up for previous seasons before? First time participant so not able to collect until Oct 29. I tried using a different nric (considered returnee) and was able to make an appointment to collect.

first time just go to the small roadshow where only 1st timer can sign up only season 4 liao i think 1st timer is way lower than return
