WHO RTC NEW

The Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) in collaboration with the University of the East Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center (UERMMMC) Graduate School is the WHO-TDR Regional Training Center for Good Health Research Practices for the Western Pacific Region.

The Philippines RTC aims to build capacity among researchers in the region in good health research practices, through the development and implementation of short courses in the areas of good clinical practices; proposal, protocol and scientific manuscript writing; good clinical laboratory practices; biosafety; ethics committee operations; and effective project planning and evaluation.

These courses are the institution’s contribution to the long-term goal of increased ability of disease endemic countries to access grants and improve quality of research and competitiveness. It is also a move towards an established global network with high-quality training courses and a resource center for TDR research training activities.
