Trans and gender diverse people are frequently denied their inalienable human rights to equality, dignity, health and security. Collecting evidence of human rights violations is essential to making them visible, and addressing them to safeguard our health and well-being. Our monitoring also aims to ensure that interventions to address transphobia, violence, stigma and discrimination and uphold the human rights of trans and gender diverse people are rooted in their lived experiences.
APTN monitors and documents abuses of human rights of trans and gender diverse people by keeping track of the latest media reports, and maintaining frequent information exchange with member organisations. We also actively seek out such information through fact-finding activities including interviews, questionnaires and surveys. We also monitor compliance with international human rights standards in our region and keep track of changes and developments.
