The Philippines is at a turning point where it is slated to reap the benefits of health research investments towards the country’s economic, social and scientific growth. The Philippine National Health Research System (PNHRS) promotes investment in health research in the country. It ensures that health research is linked to the health system needs and opportunities; it directs investments in health research towards upholding the national interest; and it stimulates national, local and international partnerships and networks for health research and development.
The core of the PNHRS lies in the formulation of the National Unified Health Research Agenda (NUHRA), which summarizes the health research and development directions of the country for a six-year period. The agenda was disseminated to health research generators, funders, and end users to advance health through strengthening research activity, generating support and funding, prioritizing investments, and promoting the translation of research to health practice, products, and services.
