Members of the ACCESS Health Philippines office recently presented their latest research on the use of evidence-based research to influence public health policy in the Philippines. This event represents the culmination of research performed under a grant awarded by the New Delhi-based Global Development Network, which aims to enhance the research capabilities of developing countries in improving development outcomes. ACCESS Health won first prize during the 2019 awards competition for Outstanding Research in Development held in Bonn, Germany—only the second Philippine entrant to win the prestigious prize in its twenty-year history.
