PAN works to facilitate, support and build participatory evaluation initiatives and partnerships that address HIV, HCV and and related issues in BC and across Canada. PAN works within a participatory and community-based evaluation framework. In other words, 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 provide the following services to our members 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 Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA) to reexamine this work and continue to move it forward.
If you have an evaluation or program science research idea, we can help. Contact Janice Duddy, our Director of Evaluation and Community-Based Research for more information. PAN’s Evaluation work is made possible through our partnership with and funding from the CIHR Centre for REACH in HIV/AIDS.
