In 2010, Khairul Amri moved overseas for the first time to join Indonesian football club Persiba Balikpapan. Khairul Amri substantiated his decision to join the Indonesian side on the fact that it was a rare opportunity, not just for him to prove himself overseas as a footballer, but to expand the profile of Singaporean football; the move would allow Khairul Amri to be exposed to a different type of challenge as he had been playing in the S. League for 5 years. Khairul Amri made a dream start to his foreign stint. He, tore one of his leg muscles and was sidelined for 7 to 8 months during a match, halfway through the season.

Khairul Amri had been slated to stay for a longer period with Persiba Balikpapan. Prior to the match that caused his knee injury, the management team had proposed a contract extension to him.

Healthcare in Singapore

Healthcare in Singapore is supervised by the Ministry of Health of the Singapore Government. It consists of a government-run universal healthcare system with a significant private healthcare sector. In addition, financing of healthcare costs is done through a mixture of direct government subsidies, compulsory savings, national healthcare insurance, cost sharing. Singapore has an efficient and widespread system of healthcare. Singapore was ranked 6th in the World Health Organization's ranking of the world's health systems in the year 2000. Bloomberg ranked Singapore's healthcare system the most efficient in the world in 2014; the Economist Intelligence Unit placed Singapore 2nd out of 166 countries for health-care outcomes. Bloomberg Global Health Index of 163 countries ranked Singapore the 4th healthiest country in the world and first in Asia. Singapore is ranked 1st on the Global Food Security Index. In 2019, Singaporeans have the world's longest life expectancy at 84.8 years. Females can expect to live an average of 87.6 years with 75.8 years in good health.

The averages for men are lower. According to global consulting firm Towers Watson, Singapore has "one of the most successful healthcare systems in the world, in terms of both efficiency in financing and the results achieved in community health outcomes"; this has been attributed to a combination of a strong reliance on medical savings accounts, cost sharing, government regulation. The government adjusts policies to regulate "the supply and prices of healthcare services in the country" in an attempt to keep costs in check. However, for the most part the government does not directly regulate the costs of private medical care; these costs are subject to market forces, vary enormously within the private sector, depending on the medical specialty and service provided. However, Towers Watson has claimed that the specific features of the Singapore healthcare system are unique, have been described as a "very difficult system to replicate in many other countries." Many Singaporeans have supplemental private health insurance for services not covered by the government's programmes.

Sir Stamford Raffles arrived in Singapore in January 1819 with a single accompanying doctor, a sub-assistant surgeon named Thomas Prendergast the medical officer in Penang's General Hospital. After a treaty was signed allowing the British East India Company to set up a trading post in Singapore, Prendergast oversaw the newly established post's medical needs until William Montgomerie arrived and served as Singapore's first surgeon. Prendergast, as a military doctor, was put in charge of the first General Hospital on the island - a small shed erected near the junction of Bras Basah Road and Stamford Road in 1821. Singapore in the early colonial years was a poorly funded trading post with severe budget constraints due to Raffles' commitment to keep it as a free port, which meant that the administration was not able to raise funds through customs duties; this made health care more difficult to provide for in this new but bustling port. Diseases such as cholera, enteric fevers and venereal diseases were common.

The General Hospital building, supposed to be an "elite" healthcare institution in the early days, had to be replaced twice by 1830 because it was "dilapidated and full of holes". The healthcare system in Singapore is divided into two sectors. There are a variety of statutory boards in place, including the Medical Council, Dental Council, Nursing Board, Pharmacy Council, Optometrists and Opticians Board. Healthcare institutions can be divided into healthcare providers. All hospitals in Singapore have been structured as government corporations since the 1990s competing with one another to have the most advanced services, technology available. There are multiple levels to both the public and private streams. Since the 1990s, all public hospitals and specialty centres have been restructured as government-owned corporations, operate under three healthcare groups or "clusters": National Healthcare Group National University Health System SingHealthThe 10 public hospitals comprise 8 general hospitals, a women's and children's hospital, a psychiatric hospital.

In addition, there are 9 national specialty centres for cancer, eye, skin and dental care. As of 2012, Singapore had a total of 10,225 doctors in its healthcare system, giving a doctor-to-population ratio of 1:520; the nurse-to-population ratio was 1:150, with a total of 34,507 nurses. There were 1,645 dentists. 70–80% of Singaporeans obtain their medical care within the public health system. Overall government spending on public healthcare amounts to 1.6% of annual GDP. This amounted to an average of $1,104 Government Health Expenditure per person. Health-related spending is the third largest expenditure item, after education expenses; as the median age of the population increases, Singapore's healthcare spending is expected to rise. Healthcare spending has risen from $4 billion in 2011 to $9.8 billion in 2016. Singapore has an incredible reputation for health services and healthcare systems. Public hospitals have autonomy over management decisions, compete with one another for patients. General hospitals have a variety of services.
