Territorial Acknowledgement: PAN, as a provincial organization, gratefully and respectfully works and partners with Indigenous Peoples in what is often referred to as British Columbia.
PAN (Pacific AIDS Network) works collaboratively with over 40 member organizations and people affected by HIV and hepatitis C to build capacity and skills for stronger communities in British Columbia. We provide workplace training, leadership development, community-based research and evaluation initiatives, and support a collective impact network to reach all regions in the province. We consult with our members across the province to ensure we represent a BC-wide voice as we advocate for change in public perception and policies.
HIV is the heart of our work historically, and people with HIV have an important role in our past and present directions. Our work has expanded as issues related to HIV emerged: hepatitis C and other health diagnoses, mental health, and problematic substance use. Other issues that impact how people access care include safe housing, food security, and poverty in general. These issues influence our work and we support the involvement of people with lived experience in our community-based response.
We value the meaningful involvement of people with lived experience.
