Nurses play an integral role in delivering primary and specialized health care in treatment facilities globally. In addition to clinical work, nurses identify and address structural barriers that affect access to care for vulnerable populations. As the preeminent HIV and AIDS nursing association, supporting a broad range of clinicians, we have become a hub for nurse-led healthcare programs and resources related to the prevention, care and treatment of HIV and its co-morbidities. We are proud that these efforts and programs are changing the course of the global HIV/AIDS epidemic.

ANAC Global Membership

ANAC has members in nearly fifty countries worldwide. We are pleased to support members of the healthcare team in communities around the globe. We collaborate on healthcare, cultural and social issues of importance to localized groups. Our global members are established leaders, emerging professionals and also novice providers and students in nursing and other healthcare disciplines. They bring expertise and knowledge in local and global healthcare, cultural and social issues to ANAC.

Licensed registered professional nurses, licensed practical/vocational nurses (or the international equivalents) and other members of the healthcare team and nursing and other health professions students, who reside in low or middle income countries as defined by the World bank, are eligible for Global membership at no cost. Global members have all the member benefits and privileges of other membership categories, but will receive the Journal of the Association of Nurses (JANAC) electronically.  

If you are unable to apply online please complete the Global Membership Form and return to Lynda Wileman via email.

If you are considering becoming a member of a global ANAC chapter and have questions, or would like to start a chapter in your area, please email anac@anacnet.org.
