“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. 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 with lived experience support them in realizing 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.
For optimum respect, safety and comfort of participants, we ask everyone at our events to honour PAN Group Guidelines and Responsibilities.
