The Pacific AIDS Network (PAN) is a vibrant, pro-active member-based coalition that provides a network to support the abilities and efforts of its member organizations to respond to HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C and related communicable diseases and conditions in British Columbia. PAN does this by facilitating communication and the sharing of best-practices and by providing professional/workforce development and leadership training to our members and people living with HIV/AIDS (PHAs) from throughout BC.
PAN acts as a voice for the community-based response. PAN provides face-to-face networking opportunities, opportunities for mutual support; education and skills development; promotes community-based research (CBR); and undertakes collective action to influence public perceptions and policies for those affected, effected and “at risk”.
Our Vision: We lead an inspired, strong and effective community-based response to HIV/AIDS, HCV and related communicable diseases and conditions.
Our Mission: Working collaboratively, the Pacific AIDS Network builds the capacity and skills of its member organizations, including people with lived experience, to effectively address HIV/AIDS, HCV, and related communicable diseases and conditions.
