Effective advocacies are currently happening around the region for the inclusion and involvement of transgender community, and Asia Pacific Transgender Network (APTN) is one of the strong advocates for transgender health and rights in the region.
In December 2015, APTN launched The Asia Pacific Trans Health Blueprint as a tool for the work trans health advocates do to improve health and human rights for trans people and trans communities. It is a comprehensive, accessible trans health reference document for trans community advocates, health professionals, policymakers, and those who design or deliver services to trans people.
The Blueprint provides information about the current health and human rights situation for trans people in Asia and the Pacific. This includes clinical advice about meeting the health needs of trans children, youth and adults. In addition, the Blueprint includes good practice examples provided by health professionals and/or trans communities about health initiatives that are working in this region. It describes policies that are making a difference in trans people’s lives.
