CRN+ is an organisation of people living with HIV and AIDS and run by people living with HIV and AIDS.
CRN+ is a founding member of the Pan Caribbean Partnership against HIV and AIDS (PANCAP) and maintains close collaborations with other networks and organisations in the region that are not mandated to be managed by PLHIV such as the Caribbean Vulnerable Communities Coalition (CVC) and the Caribbean Sex Workers Coalition. CRN+ continues to pursue the more formal and institutional linkages and partnerships with regional entities that work with under-served populations who face a higher risk of HIV infection, suffer exacerbated incidents of stigma and discrimination and have less or no access to information and prevention, care and treatment services often due to their lower socio-economic status, life-style preference, gender or societal marginalisation.
