ABOUT APCOM

APCOM is a not-for-profit regional organisation based in Bangkok, Thailand, representing and working with a network of individuals and community-based organisations across 38 countries in Asia and the Pacific. 

APCOM works to improve the health and rights of gay men, other men who have sex with men and SOGIESC people across Asia and the Pacific.

APCOM has a primary focus on HIV because it is a key health issue for gay men and other men who have sex with men in the region. APCOM also address other related health issues for our communities such as sexual health, mental health and drug use.

APCOM also focuses on improving relevant human and legal rights across the region as discrimination, stigma, criminalization and exclusion impact on the health outcomes of the communities we serve.

 

APCOM’s work on human rights

APCOM works to improve the relevant human and legal rights of LGBTIQ community by addressing issues on stigma and discrimination, as well as advocating for the decriminalisation and inclusion of the marginalised community based on their sexual orientation, gender identity and expressions, and sexual characteristics. While working to create a more enabling environment for our communities, we strengthen the community networks and build their capacities for a more effective response at a country level.

 

In 2017, APCOM implemented a 12-month project supported by VOICE Global. Called WISDOM Project, it worked intensively with LGBTIQ partner organisations in four countries to strengthen the advocacy capacity of sexually and gender diverse community in Indonesia, The Philippines, Lao PDR and Cambodia.

 

APCOM is currently implementing FINANCE Inc., a project supported by VOICE Global to contribute to improved access of persons of diverse SOGIESC to economic and social services specifically health, education and financial resources and services. It also aims to contribute to increased participation of LGBTIQ communities in the conversations aimed towards inclusion. FINANCE Inc. is anchored on the human rights principles of equality and non-discrimination as expounded in The Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights instruments.
