About the Society

Since 1987, The Association of Nurses in AIDS Care (ANAC)​ has been the leading nursing organization responding to HIV/AIDS.  The mission of ANAC is to foster the professional development of nurses and others involved in the delivery of healthcare for persons at risk for, living with, and/or affected by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and its co-morbidities. ANAC promotes the health, welfare and rights of people living with HIV around the world.

Inherent in this mission is the abiding commitment to the prevention of new HIV infections and the discovery of a cure.

ANAC is the global professional organization for networking, education, research and support for nurses and others involved in the delivery of HIV-related healthcare around the world. Our members include nurses, nurse practitioners, researchers, educators, pharmacists, social workers, physician assistants, mental health practitioners, public health officials and others involved in the care and support of people with HIV and/or AIDS.
