DAVAO CITY, Jan. 10 (PIA) -- The deadline for nominations for the 2012 Outstanding Health Research Award (OHRA) has been extended until January 31, a health research consortium official announced.

He further said that the award would like to encourage researchers to be “sensitive to the scientific and technological requirements of the health delivery system.”

Nominations for each of the category should be made on the prescribed nomination form, with document attachments such as one copy each of the technical reports and publications of the completed projects leading to the technology.

Another required document is a write-up on the impact of the project on health delivery highlighting how the results were utilized and the benefits derived from their utilization.

The third document is a statement from the technology user(s) describing the contribution of the technology in improving health delivery.

Vicente said that nominations and documents should be submitted to the Office of the Executive Director of PCHRD, 3rd floor Administration Bldg. of the Department of Science and Technology, Gen. Santos Ave., Bicutan, Taguig City.

Nominations should reach PCHRD not later than January 31, 2012, he added.
