APM Global Health UNFPA


UNFPA: Delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person's potential fulfilled.

Our Regional Office in Bangkok and our Subregional Office in Suva, Fiji, provide strategic support and technical expertise to 23 country offices across Asia and the Pacific. We deliver policy advice, guidance, training and support to empower our partners and colleagues in the field.

UNFPA is a catalyst for progress in the Asia-Pacific region. Working with governments and through partnerships with other United Nations agencies, civil society, parliamentarians, and the private sector, we make a genuine difference in the lives of millions of people, especially the most vulnerable.

Our work in HIV and SRH integration is coordinated by Ms Julia Cabassi. http://asiapacific.unfpa.org/

APMGlobal Health is a social enterprise that works to improve the reach, quality and impact of HIV sexual and reproductive health and harm reduction programmes among marginalised populations. Our work is driven by a set of values that we use to guide decisions about what we do and where and how we work. APMG's work is focused across four domains: Key Populations and PLHIV, Health Access, Organisational Stability, and Critical Enablers. Key Populations include: People Living With HIV (PLHIV), Men Who Have Sex With Men (MSM), People Who Inject Drugs (PWID), and Sex Workers (SW). Promoting Health Access focuses on better access to a meaningful knowledge of HIV and sexual health status, improving HIV outcomes along the prevention and treatment cascade, innovations in service access tracking such as Unique Identification Codes (UICs), improving supply and demand for high-quality services, procurement and supply management and service integration and collaboration. Community Organisational Stability involves designing and facilitating training programs and coaching and mentoring schemes, measurement of progress and outcomes, promoting strategic investment, and developing plain language guidance documents and tools. Critical Enablers include focussing on human rights, issues of gender and power and policy and law reform. 

APMGlobal Health’s work on this project is coordinated by Lou McCallum. Nikki Teggelove, Scott Berry and Mona Sheikh Mahmud assisted in the development of the curriculum and work with Lou to facilitate the workshops. Amber Conway and Dave Burrows also provided assistance in the development of the original regional curriculum.
