The Philippine Health Research Ethics Board (PHREB) granted HAU-Institutional Review Board a Level 2 accredited status effective June 10, 2022 until June 09, 2025. This three-year full accreditation is given to institutional research ethics committees (IERCs) that comply with the stringent requirements of PHREB. To date, HAU-IRB is the only university-affiliated IERC in the region with such status. With that, HAU-IRB fully subscribes to national ethical guidelines in research which ensures that all research of academic and non-academic staff and students are ethically sound and safe for human participants. Congratulations to the entire team of HAU-IRB that is chaired by Asst. Prof. Crisa M. Sarte, RN, MSN.
