Introduction
Amina Evangelista Swanepoel is dramatically changing the lives of women and youth in the Philippines by confronting the deep-rooted culture of stigma and misinformation surrounding reproductive and sexual health. By implementing an approach that prioritizes empowerment and community wellbeing, Amina is able to transform the discourse from a morally polarizing issue to one that recognizes reproductive rights as a vital aspect of the country’s overall health and development.
