Although HIV has been around for more than 40 years, millions of people are still affected by the disease every year. In many parts of the world, nurses are the primary caregivers for people living and aging with HIV, and they need up-to-date information about the daily management of the disease. The International Nursing Network for HIV Research was established in 1996 to respond to the need of HIV nurses for relevant information to inform clinical care. The Network’s main activity is a series of international multi-site collaborative research studies which can be found here. The Network also hosts semi-annual meetings as well as a biannual international nursing science conference. The Network’s flexible structure has proven to be one of its greatest assets, as well as a challenge. The Network has proven to be a useful framework for conducting international collaborative activities related to HIV/AIDS and nursing science.
To learn more about the Network's history, please view the article by Dr. Bill Holzemer and the JANAC President's Message by Darcel Reyes, Yvette Cuca and Carol Dawson-Rose.
Our research studies have engaged nurses and interdisciplinary scientists on six continents and 12 countries. View more information about each research study and its findings.
Through the history, the Network has worked with scholars from many parts of the world. Network investigators live and work around the world in Botswana, Canada, China, Columbia, Kenya, Namibia, Norway, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, United States, Peru and Puerto Rico.

The Network meets twice per year to discuss, design and disseminate the research funding. Upcoming meetings include summer 2022 in Montreal, Canada during the International AIDS Society Meeting. A specific date and time will be announced soon.
