Hosted by the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care, this pre-conference is intended for nurses, nurse allies, other healthcare workers, policy makers, and donors. We will address the divide between frontline health workers, in particular the nursing workforce, policy makers and donors. All three stakeholders aim for epidemic control, yet do not always work in sync to achieve this goal. Unrecognized barriers to nursing workforce capacity reduce efficiency, stunt innovation, and perpetuate missed opportunities. Organized by global nursing leaders, this session will utilize a nursing perspective to examine the barriers and identify solutions to enhance antiretroviral scale up, effective prevention, better population, and individual health outcomes in both resource-rich and resource-limited settings. Through expert panels and participant involvement, we will identify recommendations and pathways to maximize the impact of nurses and other frontline health workers.
