Additionally, Kizanne has been selected out of thousands of young leaders from 104 countries to be a fellow in the Women Deliver Young Leader’s Program, rated 4th in the world. She is also one of 10 World Contraception Day Ambassadors and advocates for the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights of Women and Girls in Latin America and the Caribbean. At present, she is the founder of Access Contraception, a global movement and social enterprise funded by Women Deliver and the University of Southampton to improve access to sexual health resources within developing countries. Her work has been recognised by numerous local, regional and international magazines and newspapers including FP2020, PSI Impact Magazine and Marie Claire UK.”

Can the use of mobile-technology to provide education and access to sexual health resources, present a solution to address this global challenge?
