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 a presence in more than fifty countries representing millions of nurses worldwide. We are pleased to support members of our profession in communities around the globe. We collaborate on healthcare, cultural and social issues of importance to localized groups.

Licensed registered professional nurses, licensed practical/vocational nurses, or the international equivalents, and nursing students who reside in low or middle income countries as defined by the World Bank. Global members will only receive the Journal of the Association of Nurses (JANAC) electronically and are not eligible to vote or run for any elected national ANAC office at the national level, but may serve on committees and global chapter leadership.
