The Central Visayas Consortium for Health Research and Development (CVCHRD) will be conducting a two-day regional health and innovation conference to find better and more innovative ways in providing quality health care to Filipinos.

The 2nd Annual Central Visayas Health Research and Innovation Conference, the event which the CVCHRD will host, will be held on June 21 and 22, 2017 at the Waterfront Hotel in Cebu City.

This year’s conference centers on the theme, “Translating Health Research: From Basic Science to Meaningful Health Outcomes”.

Health research and development practitioners, academicians and professionals will be sharing their research works, knowledge and experiences with conference participants and the public, with the goal of translating research works into effective products, services, and policies that promote meaningful health care in the community.

CVCHRD is part of the regional health research systems composed of consortia and communities which mirror the Philippine National Health Research System (PNHRS) framework at the regional level under the direction and leadership of the Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (PCHRD.)

PNHRS is institutionalized by Republic Act No. 10532 with the objectives of  “a) ensuring that health research is linked to the health system needs, b) ensuring that investments in health research yield the most benefit, c) promoting good governance among health research organizations through efficient, effective, transparent and ethical health research management system; d) engaging in national and international partnerships and networks for health research development; and e) ensuring sustainability of resources for health research.”
