Training and Leadership


“PAN is expert at bringing collective voices together for the purposes of education, empowerment and advocacy.” (PAN Member & Stakeholder Survey)

British Columbia is a large province and issues vary from region to region. Pacific AIDS Network (PAN) training and leadership programs provide ongoing connections to strengthen organizations and mentor community leaders all over BC. PAN provides skills-building and workforce development opportunities to staff and key volunteers of member organizations.  Leadership programs for people living with HIV help people realize their leadership potential and how they can participate meaningfully in community life.

We offer opportunities to explore best and promising practices in HIV and hepatitis C  health, social programs and policies, mental health, substance use and other factors that affect health outcomes. Training is developed with public health evidence and community and regional input to prioritize training needs.
