The Philippine Legislators’ Committee on Population and Development (PLCPD) joins the nation in mourning the loss of Leticia Ramos Shahani.

Senator Shahani, or LRS, as we fondly address her, was PLCPD’s founding chairperson. She was a pioneering advocate of population and development and reproductive health in the country. Her involvement on these issues covers not only her tenure as a politician but virtually all aspects of her public life—as educator, diplomat, citizen, and quintessential public servant.

Thank you, LRS, for being a trailblazer. You paved the way for the next generations of policy champions in Congress to sustain the advocacy and push for people-centered laws.
