Map showing SATA CommHealth Tanjong Pagar Clinic


Since its formation in 1947, the Singapore Anti-Tuberculosis Association (or SATA) has established itself as a leading organisation for combating tuberculosis (TB) during the post-war years. Led by a founding team of doctors and businessmen/philanthropists, SATA focused on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of TB as well as the promotion of TB awareness in Singapore during the 1940s and 50s when TB was rampant and posed a national health threat.

As the incidence of TB began falling from the 1960s, SATA extended its outpatient service to treat heart diseases and was renamed from Royal Singapore Tuberculosis Clinic to SATA Heart and Chest Clinic to reflect its expanded role. SATA remained active in promoting healthy hearts and lungs by advocating a smoke-free lifestyle through the 1970s and 80s. At the same time it also became a leading provider of statutory health screening (ie. for pre-employment and pre-enrolment) and primary healthcare services.
