Republic Act 10532, also known as the Philippine National Health Research System Act of 2013 was signed into law by President Noynoy Aquino last May 7, 2013.

The joint effort of the DOST-Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (PCHRD) and the Department of Health through the memorandum initiated in 2003 have provided avenues for health research development in the country. With the 17 regional health research and development consortia all over the Philippines, a more apt and strong collaboration among the academe, health care providers, medical institutions, government agencies and local government units is sought.
Under the new law, the PNHRS shall be comprised of a governing council whose chairmen are the secretaries of the Department of Science and Technology and Department of Health. Members are the chairman of the Commission on Higher Education, the chancellor of thd University of the Philippines-Manila, the Executive Director of the National Nutrition Council, Director of the Philippine Council fir Health Research and Development and five representatives from the private sector.
"The establishment of the PNHRS has become necessary to ensure that the Filipinos will reap the immediate benefits of health research study being conducted in the country, " says Dr. Jaime Montoya, Executive Director of the PCHRD, in his presentation of the PNHRS Law during the 7th PNHRS Week celebration in Laoag, Ilocos Norte last August 7-9, 2013.

Dr. Angeles Tan-Alora and Prof. Peter Sy discussed on the ethical guidelines and methodologies in research. Dr. Alora mainly tackled the concepts governing ethical research endeavours. She cited that researchers that are physically and ethically qualified should do researches with human subjects. Having an institution-based Ethics Review Committee will help in determining a researcher's ethical readiness. In addition, Prof. Sy's lectures were on the on the person and social aspects of it. He pointed out that while a clinical research can be beneficial to men, the method by which the output be obtained should also be considered. Clinical trials can pose harm on its research subjects, may it be tested to human or an animal subject. Both speakers were centering on the idea that researchers should consider the saying “Do not do unto others what you do not want others to do unto you”, also known as the golden rule, in the conduct of their studies.
The training also aimed to guide the participating institutions in creating their own Ethics Board which will act as a guiding body in their organization come conducting researches, especially those concerning human. Once organized, a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) Training will follow to help their Ethics Board draft their procedures manual.
