With the continued commitment of the Department of Health (DOH) in training the next generation of health sector leaders, researchers, policy analysis and program managers, the DOH partnered with Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (PCHRD) to implement the DOH Research Fellowship Program. Aligned with the Advancing Health through Evidence Assisted Decisions (AHEAD) strategy to (1) to increase individual, institutional and sectoral research capacity and (2) to position the Philippines as a global knowledge contributor, the Program aims to establish a cadre of young professionals with the appropriate knowledge, skills and attitude to appraise and conduct high quality health policy and systems research that are of policy significance.
With the passing of the Universal Health Care Act, there is a need to further develop a cadre of policy system researchers, technical experts and managers in order to strengthen internal analytic capacity in the DOH and to build health policy and systems research capacity within the sector. In line with this, the DOH Fellowship Program will be expanded in order to capacitate young professionals deployed to the regional Centers for Health Development (CHDs) all over the country.
The DOH Regional Research Fellowship Program is a 1-year term fellowship program intended for early career professionals who are considering a career in research. The Regional Research Fellows will be fully immersed in technical work at DOH regional CHDs and, in turn, will be capacitated in health policy, research and health systems management.
To produce a cadre of young professionals in the field of health systems research, policy, data analysis and health systems management at the DOH CHD level
