A fundamental goal of the APF is to support the establishment of independent national human rights institutions in the region and to strengthen our members to do this work. We also bring our members together, and build partnerships with others, to tackle some of the most serious and complex human rights challenges facing our region.

Partnerships and collaboration are vital to the work, effectiveness, and financial sustainability of the APF. Partnerships are also crucial for NHRIs to create positive change for the communities they serve. To strengthen existing partnerships with both member NHRIs and stakeholders and develop new partnerships, the APF is seeking expertise to develop our social media presence.

In the development of this social media presence, the APF is aiming to profile the work of NHRIs and their unique role in the international human rights framework, highlight the contribution of the APF to the greater realisation of rights in the region, engage with new potential partners by building our brand and profile; and to improve and strengthen relationships with existing partners through strategic, engaging, and informative communication content.
