Health researchers to get
P200,000 in study grants


The Western Visayas Health Research and Development Consortium of the Department of Science and Technology will provide P200,000 as funds for qualified scholars on health research, Glady Tomulto, DOST science research specialist, said yesterday.

Tomulto said the “Training Awards in Health Research for Region VI Scholars 2011” is intended for those interested in carrying out health research in the region.

Included in the health research agenda are maternal and child health, communicable diseases, non-communicable diseases, traditional and alternative medicine, environmental health, special sectors, health service, substance abuse, innovation/new technologies, and gender and health.

The researcher can focus on any of these aspects and make a proposal that will be submitted on July 20, Tomulto said.

Tomulto also said the research grant is in line in the 5th Philippine National Health Research System Week slated on August 10-12 at L’Fisher Hotel in Bacolod City.

The theme is “Convergence in Divergence: Innovations for Better Health” and it will discuss policies, legislations, practices involving research institutions, and focus group discussions on research utilization and health research, she said.

For more information, applicants may contact DOST-Negros at 433-9182/707-0170.*LTG
