About This Charity
The Pacific AIDS Network (PAN) works collaboratively to build the capacity and skills of our 50+ member organizations and people with lived experience, to effectively address HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C and related conditions.
PAN does this by facilitating communication, providing opportunities for involvement in community based research and the sharing of best-practices, and providing professional/workforce development and leadership training to our members and people living with HIV/AIDS from throughout BC. PAN acts as a voice for the community-based response, undertaking collective action to influence public perceptions and policies for those affected, effected and “at risk”.
HIV/AIDS has, historically, been at the heart of the work of PAN member organizations. However, individuals affected by HIV/AIDS may experience many other related conditions and challenges. Therefore, increasingly, PAN and its member organizations also address hepatitis C, other sexually transmitted or blood borne infections, mental health and problematic substance use. The social determinants of health, such as food security, housing, and poverty, are also an important focus.
Contributions made through Canada Helps goes toward our Positive Leadership Development Institute (PLDI), which supports people living with HIV/AIDS to realize their leadership potential and increase their capacity to participate meaningfully in community life.
The PLDI leadership program includes 3 different modules/trainings:
- Core Leadership – Who am I as a Leader?
- Communication Skills Training
- Bored? Get on Board! (Board governance training)
PAN is very proud of this program and to dedicate contributions made through Canada Helps to support our efforts to make a difference and transform the lives of persons living with HIV/AIDS in BC.
