APCOM has launched a new MSM framework guide for effective HIV service programming at the 21st International AIDS Conference’s MSM Pre-Conference, Action + Access: Rights and Demands of Gay and Bisexual Men in the HIV Response, hosted by MSMGF on July 16 in Durban, South Africa. "Changing Gears: a guide to effective HIV service programming for gay men and other men who have sex with men in Asia", as the new framework is titled, aims to strengthen the on-going national and regional efforts to revive the HIV response for gay and bi men and other men who have sex with men (MSM) in Asian countries. The guide was developed with technical assistance from UNAIDS Regional Support Team for Asia and the Pacific and serves as a resource to design or assess comprehensive HIV services for MSM in Asian cities, territories, regions or countries, incorporating recent innovations and the latest science on what works.

Christianity, Sexual Diversity and Access to Health Services. APCOM. (2016)

In Asia-Pacific countries, Abrahamic religions such as Islam and Christianity often condemn same-sex behaviour and gender non-conformity. This kind of stigma can and does create a sense of low self-esteem among men who have sex with men and transgender people. This, in turn, can prevent them from protecting themselves from the risks related to unsafe sexual behaviour as well as accessing available health services.

This discussion paper is APCOM’s knowledge product on coordinating an empowering response to such faith-based stigma and discrimination. A similar discussion paper focusing on Islam teaching has been released in 2013, and positively received and used by the community advocates.

Discrimination against Transgender Women in Cambodia Urban Centers. Cambodian Center for Human Rights. (2016)

immage

CCHR's research, collected through 135 surveys conducted in April 2016 in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Preah Sihanouk and Battambang, reveals that transgender ("trans") women are subject to high levels of discrimination in the Kingdom of Cambodia ("Cambodia")'s urban centers, including verbal, physical and sexual harassment in public spaces, denial of employment opportunities and discriminatory arrests, detention and abuse by the police. While senior figures in the Royal Government of Cambodia (the "RGC") have been eager to present Cambodia as a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender ("LGBT") friendly country in recent years, this research suggests much harsher reality on the ground. The findings of this research indicate that the treatment of trans women requires immediate attention if Cambodia is to meet its international human rights obligations.
