Overview

Transgender people have special health needs that have been severely neglected.

This Joint Regional Technical Brief, HIV, Sexually Transmitted Infections and Other Essential Health Needs among Transgender People in Asia and the Pacific, was developed by the WHO Regional Office for the Western Pacific in collaboration with the Asia Pacific Transgender Network, the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS, the United Nations Development Programme and the WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia in response to mounting demand from Member States and civil society organizations working with transgender people in Asia and the Pacific. It is intended to raise awareness, advocate for necessary actions, and provide guidance and technical assistance.
