APCOM Season's Greetings

Dear APCOM Friends

We would like to send a BIG thank you for supporting our efforts throughout 2018 to improve the lives of the people and communities which APCOM serves. It’s been another busy year for APCOM as we worked alongside our partners, supporters and community members to fight HIV and advance the health and rights of LGBT people and people affected by HIV across the Asia Pacific region. Some of our highlights from this year include:

These achievements, as well as many others, would not have been possible without the support of our friends across the globe. Many many thanks for your kind contributions.

We wish you and your loved ones a very happy New Year and we look forward to working with you in 2018 as we implement our new strategic plan!

All the best from the team at APCOM.

Help APCOM's Sustainability

As announced at the HERO Awards, we want to thank you, our friends and partner for supporting and helping raise funds for APCOM’s work. However, unfortunately, APCOM is currently facing a rather uncertain financial future.
Many international funding organizations and governments have decreased their financial support for HIV programs in the Asia Pacific, and this difficult environment for funding will persist for the foreseeable future
Despite our best efforts for resource mobilisation, the funding we require for much of our HIV prevention and LGBTI rights work has not come through. This means our vital impact on the HIV and human rights response in this region is seriously diminished.
If you would like to support the work of APCOM in a significant way, and if you know sources of funding and support for APCOM please reach out to me at midnightp@apcom.org
Thank you,
Midnight and all at APCOM

HIV & LGBT HEROES HONOURED AT BANGKOK WORLD AIDS DAY GALA

Heroes of HIV prevention, LGBT rights and community health were among nine people and organizations who were honoured at the 2018 Asia Pacific HERO Awards gala in Bangkok last night.

Standing for HIV, Equality, and Rights, the HERO Awards acknowledges outstanding service to the HIV response in Asia and the Pacific, and to the region’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities. Over 300 people attended the gala World AIDS Day event at the British Embassy in Bangkok which raised over US$20,000 for the Bangkok-based APCOM Foundation, a leading NGO which works to fight HIV and advance LGBT health and rights across the Asia Pacific region. The Awards were supported by a range of corporate sponsors, community organizations and diplomatic missions.
