About the speaker

Nittaya Phanuphak is Executive Director at the Institute of HIV Research and Innovation in Bangkok, Thailand. She has deep interest in HIV prevention and key populations, especially around the use of Key Population-Led Health Service (KPLHS) approaches to enhance access to HIV testing, prevention and treatment among men who have sex with men and transgender women. She currently works actively with community and government partners to establish a national technical assistance platform to support the accreditation and legalization of key population lay providers to ensure KPLHS sustainability through domestic financing mechanism.

In 2015, she supported the establishment of the Tangerine Community Health Center at the Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre (TRCARC) using an integrated hormone therapy and sexual health service approach to effectively bring almost 3,000 transgender women and transgender men into services over a 3-year period. The model is currently being expanded to community-based organisations, as well as public and private clinics, working with transgender people in the region.
