The Association of Nurses in AIDS Care (ANAC) is a membership organization that provides valuable educational, networking and career support to nursing professionals working in HIV/AIDS care.

ANAC is the only professional nursing association around the globe that is specifically for nurses working in any aspect of HIV. Our members are a diverse group of nurse clinicians, nurse educators, nurse researchers and nursing students. We also welcome non-nurse members who care about, and are interested in issues related to HIV nursing.

Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) 

ANAC strongly supports the CDC guidelines on the use of PrEP as part of HIV prevention.  The PrEP Support Hotline for Clinicians, staffed by APRNs and MDs  provides peer to peer guidance on prescribing PrEP.  In a study recently published in the Journal of Clinical Infectious Diseases found no new HIV infections among patients on PrEP during more than 2.5 years of observation.  Read more in JANAC about nurses and PrEP.

HIV Criminalization & Stigma 

Thirty three states still have laws criminalizing HIV exposure.  These laws fuel stigma by institutionalizing discrimination and are based on outdated beliefs.  People living with HIV are still being arrested for HIV exposure.  ANAC is a member of the Positive Justice Project, a national coalition to end HIV criminalization in the U.S.  Read ANAC’s policy statement calling for the modernization of HIV Criminalization laws.
