Lost in Transition: Transgender People, Rights and HIV Vulnerability in the Asia-Pacific Region. Asia Pacific Transgender Network and UNDP. (2012)

immage

This review examines existing literature on trans people’s human rights and HIV vulnerability across the Asia-Pacific region. For present purposes Asia-Pacific includes all those nations and territories on the continent of Asia (from the Mediterranean to the Pacific) and in Australasia and Oceania. The focus in this report is therefore mainly (though not exclusively) on lower income and middle income countries of the region. This is not to suggest that trans people in more affluent countries do not experience challenges. On the contrary, they often find themselves excluded from economic opportunities enjoyed by others and end up facing many of the same challenges of survival as do trans people in less developed economies.

As per the Report on HIV Estimates and Projections 2009, prepared by the National STD and AIDS Control Programme, HIV prevalence among the adult population is 0.02 percent, and an estimated 3,000 people are living with HIV and AIDS. There has been a steady increase in the number of reported cases over the years, in part due to the increase in HIV testing facilities and the availability of antiretroviral treatment.
