Last July 1, 2020, the DOST-PCHRD received 250 face shields from the DOST-Metals Industry Research and Development Center (DOST-MIRDC) as one of the beneficiaries for the project “Face Shields for the People in the Frontlines.”
The DOST-MIRDC distributed more than 200,000 pieces of 3D-printed face shields to 25 provinces and 220 institutions nationwide. The main objective of the project is to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to various hospitals and DOST line agencies working on the front lines.
Like DOST-MIRDC, the DOST-PCHRD continues to support projects and programs that would contribute to the country’s fight against COVID-19. The whole of DOST is working as one to ensure that science-driven solutions are in place to make lives better for Filipinos through research and development.
