According to the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Secretary Fortunato dela Peña, a PHP200-million budget was set aside for the three new projects designed to boost the country’s fight against COVID-19.

The projects were named Addressing and Responding to COVID-19 through Health Research (ARCHER); S&T for a Resilient Community against the Pandemic (STRAP); and Rebuilding the Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources in Response to COVID-19 (ReAARRC). Dela Peña said the projects will be implemented soon to address concerns on health, agriculture, natural resources, and emerging technology.
