Frequently Asked Questions
CRHRDC’s operation is being funded through the financial support given by the Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (DOST-PCHRD) and through the voluntary contributions from its public- and private-sector members.
The CRHRDC does not directly fund research programs, nor does it fund the companies, educational institutions, or organizations engaged in those research programs but rather, it endorses potential research proposals to certain funding agencies such as Department of Science and Technology – Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (DOST-PCHRD) and Department of Health (DOH-CAR) for funding. In such instances, the technical merits of the proposal would be endorsed and advocated by CRHRDC Research Management and Ethics Committee.
After approval of the funding agency, funding support coursed through the account of CRHRDC and will be downloaded by tranche to the institution where the project leader is affiliated.
The Cordillera Health R&D Consortium does not conduct any research. It is a strategic organization, which seeks to improve the state of research in the Cordillera, encourage commercialization of that research, and help the region’s policy makers and citizens understand the importance of research to a healthier community. Organizationally, CRHRDC has no research arm.
