George W. Bush Presidential Library Tour and Museum

The ANAC Public Service Award was bestowed upon President George W. Bush for his vision and leadership in establishing and championing the PEPFAR program. Since its inception in 2003, the President’s Emergency Program for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) has provided lifesaving treatment to 11.5 million people living with HIV in more than 100 countries. ANAC nurses have worked in PEPFAR programs and we gratefully acknowledge the President’s commitment to compassionate care for people living with HIV. View the photos here.
