APTN ENGAGES WITH A RANGE OF PARTNERS, GLOBALLY AND ACROSS ASIA AND THE PACIFIC, TO SUPPORT, ORGANISE, AND ADVOCATE FOR COMPREHENSIVE HEALTHCARE AND THE PROTECTION OF LEGAL, SOCIAL AND HUMAN RIGHTS FOR TRANS AND GENDER DIVERSE PEOPLE.
These collaborators include trans communities, academia, the health sector, multilateral and bilateral agencies, governmental organisations and NGOs, donors, and other stakeholders. Since its founding in 2009, APTN has published several key reports, policy and technical briefs, in partnership with other community-based groups and multilateral organisations, that have been used to inform policy and laws.
Advancing Justice, Rights And Access
APTN works at all levels to advocate and advance the social, health, and human rights of trans people throughout Asia and the Pacific. The focus of APTN’s mission and work is the trans and gender diverse communities. APTN has played an important role advocating for trans and gender diverse identities as a distinct demographic group with unique needs. To address and develop solutions to these needs, APTN works closely with trans and gender diverse communities, organisations, academics, government, health care providers and other key stakeholders.
Supporting The Growth And Development Of Trans People And Organisations
ATPN recognises the diverse communities, politics, and cultures that exist throughout this region and works closely with community partners to support them in developing programmes unique to the needs and context of the particular country. APTN partners with organisations throughout the region to help build capacity and unify trans communities in different countries to engage in dialogue and building a regional network.
APTN provides a platform for trans and gender diverse people to engage in community-to-community learning, build organisational capacity through workshops, and develop programme planning, implementation and evaluation of projects.
