About us: 
Since it was founded in 2009, the Asia Pacific Transgender Network (APTN) has grown to become a credible platform and voice for transgender people in Asia and the Pacific, working to ensure that their needs and rights are represented politically, socially, culturally and economically. APTN addresses trans-specific issues including vulnerability to gender-based violence, stigma and discrimination, risks for HIV infection, and health issues stemming from almost complete lack of access to appropriate health and medical care. The network serves as a platform for trans people to advocate for access to health, legal gender recognition, legislative reform, social justice and human rights and to exchange information and strategies with each other. 

APTN has conducted research projects and published several key reports, policy and technical briefs that have been used to inform programmes, policy and laws. Legal gender recognition deeply impacts the livelihood of trans and gender diverse people and is critical to ensure their dignity, rights and security. APTN is committed to working to ensure that so long as gender exists as a legal classification, that all people in Asia and the Pacific have access to identity documents that reflect their self-defined gender.

APTN envisions a society that upholds, respects, and protects the diversity, safety, equality, and dignity of trans people; the mission of APTN is to mobilise and advocate for the human rights of trans people in the Asia and the Pacific region. 

Building upon the Asia Pacific Trans Health Blueprint (2015), the recommendations and road maps developed from the From Barriers to Bridges (FB2B) Conference (2017), and recent multi-country community-led research on barrier to access to health services (2020), the Asia Pacific Transgender Network (APTN) is providing technical assistance to selected countries in Asia and the Pacific. APTN aims to support evidence-based research and service redesign in developing or upscaling of trans-competent HIV, gender-affirming and other healthcare services to improve access for trans people, and to establish community-led mechanisms and enable advocacy holding governments and healthcare providers accountable for meeting their commitments to trans-competent healthcare. 

APTN developed the Trans COMP tool community-based monitoring (CBM) tool as a resource that can be administered and led by community members to measure the availability, accessibility, acceptability and quality (AAAQ) of healthcare services provided to trans people. The Trans COMP is a community-based and administered monitoring tool that measures the intended outcomes under each country to monitor progress annually. This will be an essential tool that communities will be able to use to advocate for better healthcare systems and services and to hold government and healthcare providers accountable.
