A fundamental goal of the APF is to support the establishment of independent national human rights institutions (NHRIs) in the Asia Pacific region and to strengthen members to implement their mandate to promote and protect human rights. We also bring our members together, and build partnerships with others, in order to tackle some of the most serious and complex human rights challenges facing our region.

To contribute to this goal, the APF has established a capacity development strategy which includes approaches such as facilitated and self-facilitated learning courses, networking, mentoring, and coaching and the provision of online spaces for NHRI- to-NHRI collaboration. Last year, the APF developed the APF Community, an online learning and collaboration platform, as the primary platform to deliver this strategy.

The APF are seeking the services of a Digital Consultant to provide technical support for a range of technologies for the duration of the contract. In addition to maintenance (bug fixes, ongoing integration with technologies) the consultant will work closely with the APF for the continued development of the APF Community and the Salesforce instance as specified in the Request for Proposal.
