The Asia Pacific Transgender Network (APTN) has been closely monitoring the developments of the COVID-19 pandemic and thinking about how it is affecting the lives of the communities, and the critical work that the trans and gender diverse movement does.

We listened to our partner organisations through our COVID-19 rapid needs assessment, where they expressed concerns about continuing to work for their communities, caring for their health and safety, whilst managing the financial and emotional strain of the coronavirus disease on their organisations and their own well-being.
