The standard Lorem Ipsum passage, used since the 1500s

"Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum."

Section 1.10.32 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum", written by Cicero in 45 BC

"Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste natus error sit voluptatem accusantium doloremque laudantium, totam rem aperiam, eaque ipsa quae ab illo inventore veritatis et quasi architecto beatae vitae dicta sunt explicabo. Nemo enim ipsam voluptatem quia voluptas sit aspernatur aut odit aut fugit, sed quia consequuntur magni dolores eos qui ratione voluptatem sequi nesciunt. Neque porro quisquam est, qui dolorem ipsum quia dolor sit amet, consectetur, adipisci velit, sed quia non numquam eius modi tempora incidunt ut labore et dolore magnam aliquam quaerat voluptatem. Ut enim ad minima veniam, quis nostrum exercitationem ullam corporis suscipit laboriosam, nisi ut aliquid ex ea commodi consequatur? Quis autem vel eum iure reprehenderit qui in ea voluptate velit esse quam nihil molestiae consequatur, vel illum qui dolorem eum fugiat quo voluptas nulla pariatur?"

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

   Theme: Embedding Ethics in the National Health Research System.



Last March 7, 2014, the Philippine Council for Health Research & Development (PCHRD) held the 2nd PNHRS Steering Committee Meeting at Racks Restaurant, El Pueblo De Real, Ortigas and there were 25 participants from different institution/agencies attended the meeting.

Dr. Maria Lourdes K. Otayza, Medical Center Chief II of Mariano Marcos Memorial Hospital & Medical Center and the present Chair of Region 1 Health Research & Development Consortium was invited to be part of the said gathering and was chosen tentatively as one of the Chair of the Research Agenda as sub-committee of the Philippine National Health Research System (PNHRS).

One of the agenda was the preparation of the PNHRS Strategic Planning which will focus to assess the system and identify its future directions/activities. The actual planning will be undertaken in May.

It was also discussed about the upcoming PNHRS Week Celebration which will be on August 12-14, 2014 to be held in Cebu City. After the success of the 7th PNHRS hosted by Region 1, the 8th PNHRS Week Celebration will soon be hosted by Region 7. Supposedly this big event will take place in Manila however, taking into consideration on the Global Forum on Health Research, in which the Philippines won the bid to be the host, led by the DOST and DOH which is scheduled next year and PICC will be the finest venue. In their initial meeting, the consortium adopted the theme on “Health Research & Development and Health Emergency Management”.

One of the important inputs for the Research Agenda is the importance of doing a road show to listen to the health needs of various stakeholders which can be translated into research agenda and to go and reach out to different offices and groups in the country.

The RxBox program is designed to provide better access to life-saving health care service in isolated and disadvantaged communities nationwide. It is one among the Department of Science and Technology’s (DOST) efforts for a “Smarter Philippines”.

In 2007, RxBox played a very important role in the development of the National Telehealth Service Program (NTSP), currently one of the Department of Health’s (DOH) efforts towards Universal Health Care.

The RxBox program consists of a biomedical device and builds capacities of frontline health workers on telemedicine, the use of electronic medical records and the RxBox telemedicine device.

The RxBox supports the country’s race towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) on improving maternal and neonatal health services. It supports also the campaign to control Non Communicable Diseases, major causes of death and diseases in the country.

WHAT RxBox Does?

  • Blood Pressure Monitor – measures the patient’s blood pressure and detect heart and blood vessels problems, especially hypertension, a disease which can also worsen other chronic lifestyle disease conditions.
  • Pulse Oxymeter – assesses the level of oxygen in the patient’s blood and can help detect lung and heart problems, the leading causes of death of Filipinos.
  • Electrocardiogram (ECG) – monitors the heart’s movement to pump blood throughout the body. This is helpful for those with acute and chronic heart problems, including pregnant mothers with heart disease.
  • Fetal Heart Monitor – measures the baby’s heart rate while in the womb. It can help detect the baby’s difficulty at critical times of the pregnancy and delivery.
  • Maternal Tacometer – assesses the strength of contraction of the mother’s uterus especially during delivery. It can detect problems that can lead to distress to both the mother and her baby.
  • Improves documentation of patient information using its CHITS-electronic medical record.
  • Through telemedicine, as part of the National Telehealth Service program, links the remote primary care health workers with clinical specialists in hospitals for better patient care.
  • Reduces unnecessary travels and hospitalizations of patients.
  • Improves the health referral system in their area through telemedicine CHITS-Community health Information and Tracking System.

  • Lack of medicines and other life-saving technology.
  • Maldistribution of health workers.
  • Geographic isolation.
  • Commercialized medicine: expensive and out of reach of the poor Filipino.
