The North Carolina AIDS Action Network

NCAAN is the only statewide organization in North Carolina solely focused on improving the lives of those living with HIV and affected communities. The NCAAN Action Team is comprised of more than 10,000 active members mobilized through email, social media, phone banks, advocacy days, the North Carolina AIDS Action Network annual HIV Advocacy Conference.

In 2017, NCAAN will continue to build the skills, knowledge, and expertise of the Action Team; work to maintain current ADAP eligibility and avoid a wait list; launch the NC HIV is Not a Crime Project to amend North Carolina’s public health code to decriminalize HIV; and organize annual educational events at the North Carolina General Assembly and HIV/AIDS Advocacy Conference. Additionally, NCAAN will continue to grow and maintain the ADAP Story Project, a collection of dozens of stories of North Carolinians who have been positively impacted by ADAP.
