A grant to educate stakeholders on the health and rights of transgender people and explore models for changing gender status in official documents in order to establish an institutional mechanism for making these changes in Kyrgyzstan. SHARP funding will support an analysis of existing national and international legal and policy frameworks on changing gender markers in official state documents and the coordination of a working group of advocates, legal experts, and government representatives to explore the establishment of such a process in Kyrgyzstan. This grant was funded in partnership with Soros Foundation Kyrgyzstan.
