There has been an increasing demand amongst health workers in the Asia and Pacific region for professional development on transgender medicine and trans-competent healthcare. Whilst there have been positive shifts globally to enable greater access to trans services, barriers to healthcare still exist for transgender people in many countries in Asia and Pacific countries. As a result, in 2022, ASHM facilitated the 1st Transgender Comprehensive Care Masterclass in Thailand, facilitating an inaugural platform for knowledge exchange and sharing of best practice in trans-competent care amongst participants from across the region.
