A little about us
The Caraga Health Research and Development Consortium (CHRDC) was organized on October 16, 2007. Dr. Jaime C. Montoya, PCHRD Executive Director presented the idea of organizing a regional health consortium with membership from the academic community, health institutions and various organizations involved in health particularly those doing research and development activities. During that event, Dr. Montoya discussed the Philippine National Health Research System and the National Unified Health Research Agenda (NUHRA).
As an offshoot and after several consultations, a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between the CHRDC, PCHRD and other interested institutions was signed on May 13, 2008. The head of these institutions together with PCHRD pledged t0 support and commit to the newly created health research and development consortium.
