PAN works to facilitate, support and grow participatory evaluation initiatives and associated partnerships that address HIV, HCV and and related issues in British Columbia and across Canada. The Manager of Evaluation facilitates this work at PAN. This position is made possible through our partnership with and funding from the CIHR Centre for REACH in HIV/AIDS.
PAN works within a participatory and community-based evaluation framework. This means that we work to build strong partnerships with key stakeholders including people with lived experience, community-based organizations, health system decision-makers, and academics across the HIV and HCV sectors. We engage with the following participatory evaluation principles:
PAN also provides the following services to its membership and the HIV and HCV sectors in BC:
- Evaluation capacity building – works to build tools and learning opportunities for people and organizations who want to learn more about evaluation.
- Evaluation support – does your organization want to conduct an evaluation project but don’t know where to start? You can call PAN and discuss potential for support for the planning and implementation of evaluation projects.
- Shared Measurement – PAN has led a process to develop shared and common indicators for the community-based HIV and HCV sectors in BC. Historically this was done through the CHERT. Currently, we are working with the PHSA to reexamine this work and continue to move it forward.
