Last June 09, 2015, the group of Dr. Pilar Ramos-Jimenez conducted the assessment of the 2011-2016 National Unified Health Research Agenda (NUHRA) and the Regional Unified Health Research Agenda (RUHRA) in Region IV-A at the Villarosa Convention Hall of De La Salle Angelo King Medical Research Center, De La Salle Health Sciences Institute. The assessment looked into the development, advocacy, and implementation of the national and regional research agenda as a groundwork for the preparation of the health research agenda for the ensuing period, 2017-2022.

The members of the Management Committee and Research and Development Management Committee of the Health Research and Development  Region IV-A  participated in the focus group discussion conducted by Dr. Ramos-Jimenez. The group also collected information on completed and ongoing researches handled by the consortium and funded through the Regional Research Fund (RRF).
