Under the ICT Best Practices for e-Government category, in the recently held Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Digital Opportunity Center (ADOC) Awards, the Philippine’s e-Nutrition project bagged the grand prize. The project is a joint effort by two sub-agencies of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), the Advanced Science and Technology Institute (ASTI) and the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI). It is known as the Philippine Knowledge Centre on Food and Nutrition, it aims to improve the nutritional status of the Filipino population by providing online and updated information on food consumption, nutrition and health status. ADOC is a project started by the Taiwanese government, created to ensure the realization of goals by the APEC to speed up the development of regional programs bridging the digital divide. This is the second time the country won the ADOC Awards in the same category. The Bureau of Internal Revenue won the same award in 2005 for its e-Filing and e-Payment System. Two other projects from the Philippines were submitted for the ICT Best Practices for e-Government category: the Interactive Climate and Weather Information Network of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration, as well as the Community Health information System, otherwise known as the e-Gov for Health project of the Pasay City Health Office.
