Sharing expertise and forging partnerships is crucial in order to make genuine change on human rights.

That's why the APF has established long-term partnerships with a wide range of international agencies, governments and non-government organisations.

We work closely with the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to promote the establishment and strengthening of national human rights institutions in the Asia Pacific.

We collaborate with two of the UN's most significant agencies working to advance the human rights of women and girls - UN Women and the United Nations Population Fund - in order to provide tailored support to our members.

We also partner with UNDP on projects with our members to promote and protect the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people.

In addition, we collaborate with NGOs in the delivery of some of our training programs and on other human rights initiatives at the international, regional and national level.

We are grateful for the financial support provided by a diverse range of partners and the commitment they share to making human rights a reality for people across the Asia Pacific region.
