PPCs or Pandemic Preparedness Clinics are primary healthcare providers that form a vital part of the Singapore Ministry of Health's Flu Pandemic Response Framework.

PPCs are supported with Personal Protection Equipment and Tamiflu from the national stockpile to help manage the flu outbreak in the community. All polyclinics are also part of the PPC framework. Being located islandwide, PPCs will help ensure easy access to medical assessment and prompt treatment for people with flu-like illnesses. PPCs have undergone the necessary training to enable them to manage both flu and patients with other health conditions safely. Pandemic Preparedness Clinics (PPCs) can be recognised by the "H1N1 ready" symbol.
