Philips SimplyHealthy@School Across Archipelago

Philips has vision for health and well-being of our society and how we commit and take initiative to drive our community reaching our common goals.

 

World population has reached 7 billion on October 31, 2011. It is two sides of a coin, should we celebrate the happiness or at some point we have to be aware that this can also be a warning for us.

 

We are constantly facing the reality on fulfilling our basic needs – clean air and water, adequate nutrition, basic sanitation and good access to healthcare. Some of us may have abundance, while the others are having limited access to the essentials.

 

Experts are squeezing their minds to fight the unbalance supply versus demand, scarcity and poor quality of those basic needs.

As part of a wider community, it is Philips’ vision to help people improving their health and well-being. It has become something we are breath-in and breath-out. Philips believes health and well-being are inseparable, they are the combination of physical and mental fitness.

 

External factor such as neighborhood security also will contribute to the effort of developing people health and well-being. Through our program Kampung Terang Hemat Energi, not only we together will ensure security in our neighborhood but also we will encourage people to be smart on electrical consumption for their daily life thus we can reach our goal in energy efficiency.

Philips is focusing on the future, for our next generation, we can make it much easier. By educating them from an early age about their lifestyle and what it takes to stay healthy. It is within our power to stimulate attitudes and ideas that will stay with them until adulthood, not only improving their own quality of life but also reducing the future healthcare burden on society and helping conserve world’s limited resources.

SimplyHealthy@Schools is our global initiative to make the knowledge and resources that Philips has available for wider community and start with our young minds. Through our brand promise “Innovation and you” and focus in health and well-being, we hope our Health Warrior Toolkit inspires our next generation.
