UCAN Mission

The mission of UCAN (The United Church of Christ HIV and AIDS Network) is to build a network of people, congregations and organizations within and beyond the United Church of Christ for care giving, education and prevention in response to the HIV and AIDS pandemic by:

  • Providing technical assistance to help congregations and other settings of the church start and build their capacity and programs;
  • Offering training in the use of the UCC’s comprehensive HIV and AIDS curriculum, Affirming Persons, Saving Lives, as well as other HIV and AIDS educational resources;
  • Giving leadership for education and information on public policy concerns; and
  • Prioritizing its work to bring critical presence to those most affected by HIV and AIDS in the United States and throughout the world.
