             Since 1958, the Ramon Magsaysay Award is being given to persons – regardless of race, nationality, creed or gender – who address issues of human development in Asia with courage and creativity, and in doing so have made contributions which have transformed their societies for the better.    

            The roster of Magsaysay awardees includes social and political leaders who have led independence movements; established, restored, or strengthened democratic institutions; and reformed inept government systems. Other awardees have modernized their post-war economies; preserved and promoted indigenous cultures; and pioneered in setting up basic human services programs in health, education, and social welfare especially for the poor and marginalized. As scientists and doctors many Magsaysay Awardees have revolutionized agricultural production; led breakthroughs in disease control and cancer treatment; pioneered improvements in promoting maternal health and child survival. As public intellectuals, other awardees have shaped public policy and discourse towards environmental protection, promoting human rights, religious tolerance, the empowerment of women, and participative development.
