The Vancouver FoundationVFlogo
Thank you to the Vancouver Foundation for providing PAN with support for two initiatives:

  1. Province-Wide Service Provide Education Initiative: This project will provide initial and ongoing educational support to service providers across BC, supporting them to address the complexities around the criminalization of HIV non-disclosure, ensuring that their information, both legal and medical, is current and accurate.
  2. Health and Medical Education/Research grant for our Speaking My Truth: The Canadian HIV Stigma Index Community Based Research project. This BC arm of a national project, led by people living with HIV, will gather locally-relevant information on HIV stigma, build capacity in communities, and use the results to inform programs, services and policies.
