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, hepatitis C, and related communicable diseases and conditions.
People with lived experience of HIV, hepatitis C, substance use and mental health challenges are vital voices in our community. We work within a framework encompassing cultural safety and competence. The Pacific AIDS Network is made up of member organizations across BC, the PAN Board of Directors and staff – and PAN’s governance structures are consistent with our mission and key principles of inclusion. Key allies and collaborators focus on HIV and hepatitis C, Indigenous health, public health, housing, poverty rights and other social justice issues, law and health care policy. We work with regional, provincial and national health authorities and our supporters to provide the strongest community response possible.
