The ICN HIV/AIDS Network has recently been established to provide a resource for nurses working in, or interested in, HIV policy, practice, education and research. The network provides a forum to enable members to share knowledge and expertise. It will disseminate relevant information which reflects the changing and evolving experience of HIV infection worldwide. A Network Advisory Group is being set up to facilitate activities of the Network.
The network uses an informal model of organisation and functions under the umbrella of ICN. This provides a strong global dimension as well as international co-ordination and support. ICN’s policies and official positions on nursing and health related matters provide the framework for Network activity.
The HIV/AIDS Network is part of ICN’s coalition of networks that foster nursing globally through individual membership. Persons practicing in or interested in the field of HIV/AIDS care are invited to join in the development and advancement of the network goals.
Participation in the network is free at present and membership forms can be found here
