To further assist the R1HRDC member institutions in organizing their Research Ethics Committee (REC) and prepare for accreditation, the Capacity Building Committee (CBC) conducted an online session entitled “Journey to REC Accreditation: Sharing of Best Practices and Workshop” on October 28, 2022.
Mr. Ariel Bacani, a pioneer member of the Philippine Health Research Ethics Board (PHREB) – Regional Ethics Monitoring Board 1 (REMB 1) since 2017 shared topics about the institutionalization of RECs and the accreditation process highlighting the important national and international ethical guidelines. The Chairmen from three (3) accredited RECs in the region namely Fr. Alfredo Corpuz of UNP-ERC, Mr. Eric Vincent Maminta of DTRC-REC, and Dr. Imelda Larissa Sanchez of ITRMC-REC, were also invited to share their accreditation journey vis-à-vis their best practices and tips on how to manage the accreditation process. During the workshop, the participants from the 3 attending institutions identified their current status and they developed a plan on how they can move forward and become a functional ethics committee.

After two years of virtual gatherings, the Philippine National Health Research System (PNHRS) Week celebrated its 15th annual convention on August 8-12, 2022 through a hybrid format of virtual conference and face-to-face gathering at Marriot Hotel, Clark Freeport Zone, Mabalacat City, Pampanga with the theme “Health Research: Responding to Challenges towards National Recovery and Resiliency”. It was hosted by the Central Luzon Health Research and Development Consortium (CLHRDC) and the Department of Science and Technology-Region III (DOST III).
With that, the R1HRDC has again proven its legacy of creating quality health researches by bagging awards and recognitions during the 5-day event as follows:
The Region 1 Health Research and Development Consortium (R1HRDC) spearheaded by the Research Utilization Committee (RUC), successfully conducted the 2022 R1HRDC Research Conference with the theme “People-Centered Health Research Towards National Recovery and Resiliency” last June 24, 2022, via Zoom Platform, despite challenges. The activity aimed in providing a platform for students and professionals to disseminate the results of their research as well as to recognize and give awards for their work.
