This document contains the proceedings of the training workshop on operations research (OR) for program managers and researchers held January 15-21, 1996, in Mindoro, Philippines. The workshop was co-sponsored by the Family Planning Service of the Department of Health and the Family Planning Operations Research and Training Program of the Population Council, Manila. Representatives from the health and population offices of ten local government units (LGUs) worked with a select group of researchers to evolve a list of relevant topics for operations research (OR) and develop a concept paper on a chosen OR topic. The LGUs represented in the workshop were selected from a group of local governments participating in the LGU Performance Program of the Department of Health. A series of lectures and paper presentations on three major modules comprised the training workshop. Workshop sessions provided program managers and researchers the opportunity to put all these new learnings into practice by working together on their concept papers. The training workshop was capped by the individual LGU presentations of concept papers to a review panel which provided its critique and comments.
