Years of Existence


In its endeavour to serve its target population, EANNASO will remain true to values that guide programming and operations of the organization as a whole. These values form an integral part of the strategy and by making them public, commits the organisation to uphold them:



Communities attain highest quality of health in Africa.


To inspire healthier communities by increasing the contribution of civil society and community groups in health responses towards the elimination of HIV, TB, Malaria, SRH and other health concerns.

Though EANNASO is an east Africa membership organization, she works with CS and communities in the broader Anglophone Africa as she remains the only surviving sub-regional HIV, TB and Health network. EANNASO is known for coordinating civil society and community expertise as its strongest niche and building on existing capacities to strengthen the voice of CS and CG.


Membership of EANNASO is made up of National Networks of AIDS Service Organisations in the Eastern Africa region.
