  • Kathmandu Nepal

This 3-day consultation is supported by UNDP Bangkok Regional Hub under the Multi-Country South Asia (MSA) Global Fund HIV Programme, together with APTN, USAID, PEPFAR and the Health Policy Project.  It will be the first of its kind in South Asia, bringing together key Transgender  and Hijra activists from South Asia and the wider Asia Pacific region to share their common culture and history while discussing their human rights and health needs and challenges. The overall objective of this consultation is to develop ways  to advance the Transgender and Hijra agenda in South Asia and to provide inputs into the Asia Pacific Transgender Blue Print. The consultation aims to produce key messages and recommendations to strengthen the progressive advocacy work of Trans/Hijra individuals and support law officials and policymakers in informed decisions which are grounded in evidence.
