Regional Research Fund

What proposals may qualify
Research proposals that will be reviewed by the RHRDC and PCHRD are those which address priority health problems/issues identified in the Regional Unified Health Research Agenda (RUHRA) and/or National Unified Health Research Agenda (NUHRA) of the Philippine National Health Research System (PNHRS). The proposals should also have a budgetary requirement not exceeding FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND PESOS (P500,000.00), and have a duration of six months to one-year.

Who may apply
