People with HIV are now living longer and with better quality of life than ever before.
If you are living with HIV, it's important for you to have the information necessary to keep you healthy…


There are many meaningful ways to get involved with ACNS. No matter how you show your support, you will make a difference in the lives of women, men, youth and families in Nova Scotia.

Take part in exciting fundraising events as a volunteer, or just join us for some fun. Volunteers and event supporters play an important role in our efforts to provide access to support for people living with HIV, prevention education programs and campaigns, and our commitment to reducing stigma.

Involvement as an individual, group or company, builds a sense of community and teamwork. Many volunteers say that ACNS events are a favourite, or even their top pick, among their volunteer work. Make a difference, share what you have learned, develop your talents, connect with new people and be a part of a larger team.

The positive impact of your involvement will help improve the quality of life for those living with HIV, and at risk, forever. We can’t do it without you!
