We are pleased to share our strategic plan that will guide our priorities, planning, and actions over the coming year. This strategic plan includes a commitment to visioning the future for AIDS Vancouver. Over the course of this strategic plan, we will be asking each other, "How can we support people living with HIV in 2023 and beyond?"
Our Strategic Plan is also available as a pdf or as a hard copy at any our office or peer offices. We firmly believe this work will allow AIDS Vancouver to continue to support people living with HIV for many years to come. We remain committed to AIDS Vancouver's current programs and services, and will continue to deliver programs and services as usual as we implement this strategic plan.
1. Engage our community
AIDS Vancouver will consistently engage and communicate with clients, members, community partners, volunteers, and staff around key events and developments within the organization.
Expected Outcomes: People in our community will have more chances to tell us what you think, and you will hear from us more often.
2. Vision our future
AIDS Vancouver will secure the future of AIDS Vancouver's programs and services by revising the organization's vision, mission, values, and brand (including our name) to better reflect GIPA/MIPA*, Indigenous leadership, and justice, equity, diversity and inclusion. This process will be complete by March 31, 2024.
- This strategic objective was endorsed by the AIDS Vancouver membership at a Special General Meeting on February 6, 2023.
- As we work to vision our future, we are excited to honour and build on the 40 years of work, care, and advocacy from individuals, past and present, who have made AIDS Vancouver what it is today.
- We will continue to offer our existing programs and services through this process.
3. Embed our principles
Embed GIPA/MIPA*, Indigenous leadership, and justice, equity, diversity and inclusion into agency programs, services, work culture, and governance with the goal of supporting communities most impacted by HIV.
Expected Outcomes: clients, volunteers, donors, and community partners will see the concepts that matter to us show up more intentionally in our programs, services, work culture, and governance.
What is GIPA/MIPA?
GIPA/MIPA stands for the Greater and Meaningful Involvement of People Living with HIV/AIDS. In this principle, people living with HIV/AIDS have rights and responsibilities - including the right to be involved and actively participate in things that affect them. Learn more about GIPA/MIPA from the Vancouver Island Persons Living with HIV/AIDS Society.
