A COMPARATIVE STUDY ON PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT IN JAPAN AND THE PHILIPPINES: IMPACTS ON CHILDREN'S EDUCATIONAL OUTCOMES
Project Director: Dr. Melvin A. Jabar
Funding Agency: The Sumitomo Foundation

This comparative analysis on parental involvement in Japanese and Philippine elementary education specifically seeks to determine how parental involvement or engagement impacts children’s educational outcomes. The study addresses current research gaps, in that parental involvement in elementary education in the Philippines is relatively sparse, and that literature on parental involvement in the Japanese context in English is likewise rare. Moreover, it has an added value as a timely research enterprise considering that the former is in the K-12 transition. The study will be conducted in Beppu City in Japan, and Cagayan de Oro City in the Philippines. Parents of grade six students in one elementary school in each city will be selected to participate in the study. 

BASELINE DATA GATHERING FOR INCLUSIVE ECCD AND PROTECTION PROJECT IN TAGUIG, PATEROS AND PARAÑAQUE
Project Director: Dr. Maria Caridad H. Tarroja
Funding Agency: Save the Children

The current research, which Save the Children Fund-Philippines has selected SDRC to conduct, aims to gather information prior to implementing the Fund’s projects. This can provide valuable insight as to whether Save the Children’s efforts will be effective at the end of its two-year campaign to promote inclusive education for children with disabilities in three target areas. Focus group discussions have been held with teachers and parents of children with and without disability. Key informant interviews have also been conducted with the sites’ social workers and head teachers, and pre-testing of the survey tool for day care center children and elementary students has been carried out. Next steps include scheduling the final interviews with a Council for the Welfare of Children (CWC) representative and DepEd supervisors; and survey administration to selected toddlers, elementary students, and parents.

WHO DISABILITY ASSESSMENT SURVEY IN YOLANDA AFFECTED AREAS IN THE PHILIPPINES (WHODAS)
Project Director: Dr. Maria Caridad H. Tarroja
Funding Agency: World Health Organization (WHO)

The WHODAS survey will establish the percentage of the population that is functioning poorly and is likely to be in need of services, including those with severe or extreme difficulties in functioning in different aspects of day-to-day life. The survey will also identify correlates of good and poor functioning, provide information on changes over the year of recovery, and highlight the subject areas in which people do better and worse. The baseline survey will be carried out with the agreement and participation of the Department of Health Regional Director of Region VIII. Being the most typhoon-affected area, Region VIII has a total population of 4.5 million people, of which close to half live in typhoon-affected municipalities.

YOLANDA AFTERMATH: DISASTER RISK REDUCTION RESPONSES, NEEDS, OPTIMISM AND SENTIMENTS OF ECONOMICALLY DISADVANTAGED FAMILIES IN LEYTE
Project Director: Dr. Exaltacion E. Lamberte
Funding Agency: Philippine Council for Health Research and Development-Department of Science and Technology (PCHRD-DOST) / SDRC In-House Research Fund

This project, being undertaken with the support of the Philippine Council for Health Research & Development of the Department of Science and Technology (PCHRD-DOST), seeks to determine the impact of disaster management efforts during the onslaught of Supertyphoon Yolanda in Leyte.  Specifically, the study’s aims include: 1) Finding the extent to which the poorest segment of the residents were affected by the typhoon, and whether disaster management/preparations made a difference in the extent of the damages experienced by the typhoon survivors; 2) discovering to what extent the delivery of basic services was affected, including its network of services delivery mechanisms, particularly health services and schooling of children; and 3) identifying the health needs and health seeking behavior of the families under an emergency situation and different life conditions.

HIGHER EDUCATION ACCOUNTABILITY AND TRANSPARENCY (HEAT)
Project Director: Dr. Melvin A. Jabar
Funding Agency:  Philippine Business for Education (PBEd)

The study to develop a “Higher Education Accountability and Transparency Portal” aims to create a database of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in the Philippines. It intends to address the skills gap and mismatch problem through the formation of industry-academe partnerships at the national and regional level. The said database will be used in a local online portal that students can access to obtain accurate and up-to-date information about private and public colleges and universities in the country, and hopefully guide them in making informed decisions regarding their future college education options. The portal to be known as “HEAT” is being launched through the support of the Philippine Business for Education (PBEd) and is the first of its kind in the country.

HEALTH FACILITY ASSESSMENT ON ZUELLIG FAMILY FOUNDATION'S DONATED BARANGAY HEALTH STATIONS AND BIRTHING UNITS
Project Director: Prof. Ma. Angeles G. Lapeña 
Funding Agency:  Zuellig Family Foundation

The Zuellig Family Foundation (ZFF) has partnered with various rural municipalities in the Philippines in efforts to improve leadership and governance, which is part of the World Health Organization’s Six Building Blocks of health systems. To support the reforms being implemented by Health Leadership Teams, each municipality under the Community Health Partnership Program (CHPP) receives two infrastructure grants to construct birthing facilities in their respective districts, which are expected to increase access of the population to health services, and therefore reduce the maternal mortality rate and infant mortality rate by 2015. The Foundation is institutionalizing an annual health facility audit, with SDRC as the partner research institution that will develop and implement the audit’s research protocol.
