In the Philippines, most of the medical researches done are NOT of the action research type. Thus, their utility just end in being published in journals. They are NOT being used by the people in the institution of origin of the research papers. More so, they are NOT being used by people outside the institution of origin.

Most research projects are met with problems of know-how on research methodology, number of clinical subjects, and lack of motivation.
