In many countries, however, men who have sex with men, sex workers, transgender people, and people who inject drugs are taking the lead to ensure that their peers receive the services they need. This issue of The Link highlights some of these efforts as it examines the promise of peer-led and peer-assisted interventions designed to increase access to and uptake of HIV prevention, care, and treatment services.
Commissioned by The Global Network of Transgender Women and HIV (IRGT), this report documents findings from the examination of relevant literature and from semi-structured interviews (with transgender community activists, civil society organization representatives, and officials from major donors) on the remaining barriers to addressing the HIV related needs of transgender people, as well as good practices for engaging key donors (such as The Global Fund).
This Policy Brief presents up-to-date evidence about transgender health in the Philippines based on the IHBSS survey conducted in Cebu City, on the Femina Trans Initiative and on the results of the focus group discussions conducted in the Philippines that were part of the aforementioned regional assessment. The document also highlights the implications for policymaking, programming and service delivery to improve the health of Filipino transgender women.

Since 2013, APCOM has established partnerships with fifteen (15) MSM and transgender networks and organisations at a regional, sub-regional and country level in Asia and the Pacific. These networks and organisations have completed the rapid assessment apparatus and were provided technical support. A peer-to-peer mentoring process was also applied in providing assistance to build relationship and trust. APCOM has also provided opportunities to the organisations at a country level to formally present the Rap App results to technical stakeholders and mobilise for resources.

This new guide from the USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Project is a flexible tool for assessing the readiness and ability of country stakeholders (including government, development partners, and civil society) to sustain HIV epidemic control among key populations when donors transition to different levels and types of funding.
This report provides an overview and analysis of the findings of rapid assessments of MSM and transgender networks indicating capacity strengths and gaps in organisational and programmatic components. The rapid assessment is part of JumpStart, a MSM and transgender networks capacity strengthening initiative under the partnership of APCOM and AFAO.
The JumpStart Rap App was used to assess the organisational capacity of five MSM and transgender networks and organisations in Southeast Asia. The findings indicate capacity gaps in all 11 organisational and programmatic components of the Rap App, although the five organisations vary widely in their reach, capacity and technical support needs.
The Scoping Report aims to assess the level of engagement of the MSM and transgender community with the country dialogues in Indonesia. In addition, the report also aims to determine the level of engagements between the community and the Global Fund Indonesian CCM. This activity has been supported by the Robert Carr Civil Society Networks Fund through the Consortium of MSM and Transgender Networks hosted by MSMGF.
