Idadaan sa digital art o ang paggamit ng internet sa makasining na paraan ang ginagawang pagsasaliksik ngayon ng National Research Council of the Philippines para sa Greater Awareness ng Publiko ukol sa Human Immuno Deficiency Virus o HIV at AIDS. Sa kabila ng aminado silang ang usapin ng AIDS at HIV ay isang usaping medikal, hayagan naman na ito rin ay isang usaping panlipunan na nakaka apekto sa produktibong pananaw ng sambayanan.
Bagaman may mga nagsasabi na ito rin ay usaping moral, maihahalintulad ang isyu sa iba pang isyung kawing nito gaya ng sekswalidad, pagkakaroon ng maraming karelasyon at kapusukan. Sa kabila nito ay nais na maipalaganap ang kamalayan ng mamamayan ukol sa mga kabutihan at kasamaan ng pagkakaalam ng mga kabataan sa bagay na ito kung saan ginagawang malinaw ng mga mananaliksik kung para sa anong baytang ang impormasyong nararapat nilang malaman upang hindi sila maligaw ng landas.
Napag alamang sa kabila ng dunong at talino ng karamihan ng nahawaan ng nasabing sakit, malaking bahagi sa mga ito ay hindi nauunawaan ang nangyaring pagkahawa sa kanila. makikita ang bidyo ng panayam sa mga dalubhasang nagsilbing tagapagsalita sa nasabing pulong balitaan sa DZMJ Online Season 11 Episode 5 na ginanap sa Sulo Hotel, Quezon City na pinangunahan ng National research Council of the Philippines or NRCP, kasama ang Department of Science and Technology National Capital Region or DOST NCR, Technology Applications and Promotions Institute or TAPI and Philippine Council for Health Research and Development or PCHRD at National Academy of Science and Technology.

PCAARRD Chief welcomes Joint RRDCC Reps
Dr. Reynaldo V. Ebora, Acting Executive Director of the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development, Department of Science and Technology (DOST-PCAARRD), welcomed the participants of the Joint Regional Research and Development Coordinating Councils (RRDCC) Meeting.
Attended by Chairpersons, Consortium Directors, and PCAARRD Directorate, the meeting was held at the RD Guerrero Hall, DOST-PCAARRD Innovation and Technology Center on January 31, 2019.
The RRDCC is composed of the heads of the different consortia, each of which is dubbed as the PCAARRD in the regions. It is the policy-making body tasked to lay down polices and guidelines and approve long term consortium plans.
Ebora underscored the importance of partnership and collaboration between the Council and the RRDCC in reference to the letters P and C in the Council’s acronym, as he cited the importance of the meeting in being able to sustain what the RRDCC has accomplished in the past year.
“With this meeting, we hope that we will be able to launch programs that will not only be relevant to national programs but will also be relevant to the region,” Ebora said.
Ebora also challenged the RRDCC towards the crafting of plans and activities that are not routine and to be more visible in implementing R&D activities (Ricardo R. Argana, DOST-PCAARRD S&T Media Services).
