Oxford University Press

This chapter presents the case study by Ngoh Tiong Tan with regard to the SARS epidemic. It details how one country addressed the threat of the pandemic and spells out potential roles for social workers. Although some of the interventions described are specific to Singapore and may not work in other contexts, the discussion provides a useful example as the world as a whole and the profession of social work in particular face future global health threats.

Keywords:   SARS, epidemics, Singapore, social work practice, global health threats
