Ground-breaking research 
Marginalized communities often face severe and systemic rights violations. Asia Catalyst conducts rigorous documentation and evidence-based advocacy; our research influences policy around the region.


Our Blog
Communities that experience increased health and human rights violations seldom have platforms to voice their lived experiences. Our community blog The Catalyst changes that.

Xiomi “Before Asia Catalyst, I did not think that we could make real change. I thought, ‘maybe others can do it, but we cannot.’ Now, I don’t just think that we can make change in the lives of people living with HIV. We already have.” —Xiaomi, The Lingnan Partner Community Support Center, a PLHIV & MSM CBO in China
