Blueprint for the Provision of Comprehensive Care for Trans People and Trans Communities in Asia and the Pacific
Oct 1, 2015
This publication outlines the priority health care needs and human rights issues for transgender people in the Asia Pacific region. Drawing upon inputs from trans individuals and organizations, medical professionals, and policymakers from throughout the region, Blueprint aims to strengthen and enhance the policy-related, clinical, and public health responses for trans people in the region. This document is the third in a series of regional transgender health guidance documents, and builds on similar publications produced in Latin America and the Caribbean.
This Blueprint was collaboratively developed by UNDP through the Multi-Country South Asia Global Fund HIV Programme and the ‘Being LGBTI in Asia’ Programme; the Asia Pacific Transgender Network (APTN); and, the USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HPP), in close partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO); the World Association for Transgender Health (WPATH); the World Association for Sexual Health (WAS); and, the Pacific Sexual Diversity Network (PSDN).
