Information and Communications Technology (ICT) has become an indispensable part of everyday life.  Effective use of ICT tools in health care delivery will help   in achieving the goal of governent in providing equitable access to health care in the rural areas.    In line with this, the Department of Science and Technology through the Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (DOST-PCHRD) has recently approved the  grant of research entitled “ICT Needs Assessment of Rural Health Units (RHUs) in Zamboanga Peninsula”.

According to the Director of the Zamboanga Consortium for Health Research and Development (ZCHRD) Dr. Teresita Montaño, the study will be conducted by Maria Rosthel A. Geonzon and Ricardo B. Garcia both from the Western Mindanao State University - Research and Development  Evaluation Center (WMSU-RDEC). The funding assistance amounting to Four Hundred Fifty One Thousand Seven Hundred Fifteen Pesos (PhP451,715.00) is made possible through the strong collaboration of  ZCHRD member institutions in coming up with viable research proposals.

Local media practitioners and information officers of national   government agencies and academic institutions will attend the “2014 NUTRICOMNET-IX Media Forum,” scheduled on November 5, 2014 at the Grand Astoria Hotel, Zamboanga City. The event is organized by the Department of Science and Technology Regional Office No. IX and the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI).

According to DOST IX Regional Director Brenda L. Nazareth-Manzano,   the forum will highlight the 8th National Nutrition Survey (NNS) data on hypercholesterolemia.   Hypercholesterolemia is the presence of high levels of cholesterol in the blood.    The event will also discuss the importance of dietary fiber, calcium and its health benefits and tips on “Living a Healthy Lifestyle”.

Access to potable water is one of the major development concerns of the government. With the aim to make local technology work for the people and to provide practical solutions to the current problems, the Department of Science and Technology-IX will grant 200 units of Ceramic Water Filter to poor families in Zamboanga Peninsula region. The target beneficiaries are selected indigenous people of Buug, Zamboanga Sibugay and Siayan, Zamboangadel Norte.

Initially, some 30 units of locally-developed water filter technology were distributed to the families of Buug Subanen Workers Association during their 1stanniversary celebration held last September 30 in Buug.  DOST IX will give out the remaining units of water filter to other target families within this month.
