Sessions may offer insight into new and innovative approaches to work, new research that will contribute to shared community knowledge, advocacy issues, new community resources, or the social determinants of health that affect HIV and hepatitis C. The PAN Presents series connects PAN member organizations with provincial Health Authority representatives, provincial and federal funding organizations, and representatives from governmental ministries. You can learn the latest information from these voices, and bring your questions to the table in these exchanges.
