The Chesapeake Chapter of the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care is a non-profit organization of nurses dedicated to improving the health of communities impacted by HIV in Maryland and supporting the professional development of our members.
Among U.S. states, Maryland has the second highest prevalence of persons living with HIV and the highest rate of new diagnoses, exceeded only by New York and the smaller territories of the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands (HIV Surveillance Report). The City of Baltimore, Maryland, has the third highest number of persons living with HIV of all U.S cities.
Get involved and learn, becoming a better healthcare practitioner and helping the communities you care about in the process.
The Chesapeake Chapter of ANAC promotes the professional development of our members through educational events including chapter dinner meetings and our annual conference that offer CEUs. We help our communities through a number of projects aimed to raise awareness of HIV, focus on prevention and fight stigma associated with HIV and high-risk groups. And we’re working with key stakeholders and decision makers to advance rational and evidence-based policies and programs that can reduce new infections and improve access to quality healthcare.
