PAN’s staff is made up of people from diverse experiences including those who self-identify as people living with HIV, gbMSM, transgender, gender-diverse, Indigenous, people who use/used drugs, people with a disability. Working with PAN means joining a passionate, diverse and dedicated team of people who are committed to bringing the organization’s mission to life.

Working collaboratively, PAN 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. Practically speaking 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.
