The Global HIV Nursing Specialty Committee was created to address and respond to the urgent and diverse issues of the global AIDS pandemic. Our responsibilities include (1) providing support to our nursing colleagues working in AIDS care, particularly those in resource limited settings; (2) establishing an ANAC presence in the constituency of health professionals working in global HIV/AIDS care and prevention; and (3) serving as a resource, sharing Committee members’ expertise working in many countries and regions of the world.
The Global HIV Nursing Specialty Committee prizes the two-way learning that comes in sharing HIV nursing knowledge and experience with global colleagues. Our members are working in over 45 countries in Africa, the Caribbean, and Central and Southeast Asia providing expertise in curriculum development and training, community health services and community mobilization, health systems assessment and capacity building of health workforce, HIV prevention and clinical care, supporting development of nursing leadership, and much more.
If you would like to inquire about expert resources through the Committee in a particular area (e.g. training, clinical support, curriculum development) or within specific countries or regions, complete the request form here.
