Our team

As a community of changemakers, people are a critical ingredient of our success. We are fortunate to have skilled board members, regional advisors and staff to help us advance our mission.

The APCOM Secretariat is made up of 17 diverse, highly skilled and compassionate individuals. All our staff identify as being part of the community and as one of the key affected populations including youth and people living with HIV.

The staffs are accompanied by seven board members who are experts of various key topics of health and rights advocacy and practice, representing each subregion of Asia and the Pacific.
