This year, there were 95 applications from 16 countries/economics, which is really an inspiring number especially in the challenging times amidst covid19. There are also cases that contribute to fighting against the global pandemic, sharing excellent partnering experiences in the Asia Pacific including YAC Pakistan, promoting good health and well-being, and reducing gender inequality through the use of digital technologies and developing Pakistan’s first TransHelp app.

On the occasion, the Founder and CEO of Youth Advocacy Council Pakistan Mr. Mohsin Khan said that “the TransHelp app aimed at bridging knowledge gaps, and tend to enhance access to health care services for the marginalized communities, particularly during the pandemic for transgender persons. It will not educate, sensitize, and empower more than 50,000 Transgenders and youth but enable them to counter stigmas associated with HIV/AIDS, and reduces HIV, STI, and other endemic disease incidences in Pakistan”.
