Post: Trans Health & Rights Module Campaign Coordinator
Contract Duration: July – September 2022
Reports to: APTN Senior Program Officer and Communications Officer
Application Deadline: 8 July 2022
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 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.
Under APTN’s healthcare pillars in its 2018-2020 Strategic Plan, APTN will build upon the Asia Pacific Trans Health Blueprint (2015) and the recommendations and road maps developed from the From Barriers to Bridges (FB2B) Conference (2017), to improve access to trans-competent HIV and healthcare services for trans people in the Asia and the Pacific region, and to establish mechanisms and enable advocacy holding governments and healthcare providers accountable for meeting their commitments to rights-based trans-competent healthcare.
APTN has developed a transgender healthcare and rights training module, an introductory resource on trans-competent and gender-affirming healthcare for medical professionals and other healthcare workers in Asia and the Pacific, particularly those in primary care including community-based health services. Through a self-paced and interactive course (developed through the Thinkific platform), the Toward Transformative Healthcare Module will increase healthcare providers’ knowledge, attitudes, and skills on providing trans clinical and culturally competent care.
