Nashville Cares

The Tennessee AIDS Advocacy Network (TAAN), an initiate of Nashville cares, was created in 2007 as a vehicle for individuals throughout Tennessee to engage in advocacy. TAAN places a particular focus on involvement of people living with HIV and coalition work to promote policies related to social justice issues that affect those at risk for or living with HIV.

TAAN educates and mobilizes advocates and community partners about the needs for and public health benefits of modernization of Tennessee’s HIV criminal exposure law; works with Tennessee Justice Center and Coalition partners to protect and expand access to affordable insurance and care; and is continuing to participate in HIV racial and social justice education, collaborations, and partnerships.
