Established in 2007, APCOM is a regional non-profit organisation working across 35 countries in the Asia Pacific region. APCOM wants a world where all gay men, other men who have sex with men and people of diverse Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Expression, and Sex Characteristics (SOGIESC) can fully participate in and achieve sustainable development in all aspects of their health, rights and wellbeing. APCOM is currently working through its Strategic Framework – TENACITY: - HIV is not over – strengthening the HIV response for gay men and other men who have sex with men - Our rights – protecting gay men, other men who have sex with men and SOGIESC people - Our strength – stronger interlinked communities and broader partner networks APCOM believes strongly that strategies on every level should be developed by and for the communities with input and support from other stakeholders. The community-led focus is crucial in APCOM’s approach as our thinking and experience is that community members can be reached best and most effectively by peers and fellow community members. While growing the movement in a spirit of trust and confidence, the existing barriers of equity, dignity and social justice in any country can be tackled.
