HIV and AIDS continues to present a significant health problem in today's society. The Center for Disease Control estimates 1.2 million people aged 13 and older live with HIV infection (CDC, 2015). The World Health Organization puts this number at 37 million worldwide (WHO, 2015). Nurses have also shared their own opinions on the role of nursing in HIV awareness:
Why nurses should support the cause
“The practice of nurses globally is changing. Increasing consumerism, technological innovations, new managerial policy and the evidence based practice revolution are factors identified as impacting on the role nurses play and will play in the future asserts that 'nurses in the 21st century will be deeply involved in providing competent, sensitive, and responsible care to individuals, families, and cultures from different communities and institutions'. The preparation of nurses and the manner in which they will keep their practice current are issues being debated by the profession.”
How Nurse involvement differs from that of a business leader
"Nurses are expected to demonstrate professionalism through service leadership, but it is unlikely they have been prepared to understand the responsibilities associated with taking leadership roles in the community. "
How involvement in the cause can enhance your professionalism and leadership
The success of anti-retroviral treatments now mean that HIV/AIDS is no longer seen as a death sentence, changing people's perception of the disease, but the burden of living with a long-term condition requiring complex medication regimes is not widely understood...Information that helps people negotiate safe sex and build their self-esteem is more important than scaremongering about specific viruses -- Linda Drake, practice nurse in south east London (Nursing Standard, 2011).
How nurse leaders and researchers can support the cause

The Association of Nurses in AIDS Care (ANAC) dedicated to response of HIV/AIDS including patient care, research, prevention, and policy. In the Association's mission statement, we see how nurse leaders support the cause by:
Creating an effective network among nurses in AIDS Care.
Studying, researching and exchanging information, experiences, and ideas leading to improved care for persons with AIDS/HIV infection.
Providing leadership to the nursing community in matters related to HIV/AIDS infection.
Advocating for HIV infected persons And, promoting social awareness concerning issues related to HIV/AIDS
Business Adviser/Leader

"Often a peer of the Business Ambassador, the Business Adviser is called upon to provide specific, and often, specialist input to solution development or solution testing. The Business Adviser will normally be an intended user or beneficiary of the solution but may, for example, simply provide legal or regulatory advice with which the solution must comply.

Based on the specialism for which the Business Adviser has been engaged:

Providing specialist input into relevant:
Requirements, design and review activities
Day-to-day project decisions
Business scenarios to help define and test the solution
Providing specialist advice on, or help with:
Organizing and controlling business acceptance testing of the solution
Developing business user documentation for the ultimate solution
User training"
"There are many benefits for practicing nurses who volunteer for community board service. In addition to the sense of confidence and pride that comes from contributing to the community's health care needs, board service helps nurses remain up-to-date on local policies and health care issues, expand practice beyond direct care, develop or practice new skills, network with others, act as a community advocate, engage in the shaping or reshaping of health care policy, and promote respect and recognition for nurses and nursing in the community."

How nurse leaders can influence these professional organizations
Nursing deals directly with patients and often while providing patient care, nurse have the first hand experience of dealing with the patients. Nowadays with the concept of Holistic Nursing the nurses also learn the emotional side of the patient like what their mental state is, how is the family and society treats their loved ones with HIV.
The World Health Organization maintained that health care workers, including nurses who are engaged in practice at the primary care level have the capacity to influence community behaviors and therefore improve population health (World Health Organization, 1998).
How the campaign affects the image of nursing in social media
Campaign regarding HIV or AIDS shows the positive Image of Nursing and dispels any misconceptions the public may have of nurses and the profession of nursing:
by re-educating the society.
educating nursing students along with other healthcare professionals on how to deal with people suffering from HIV.
provide professional patient care.

Social Media:

Facebook page which covers a variety of topics HIV in addition to sexual health awareness.
Other social media outlets like Twitter, Reddit, and Tumblr can be used by Nurses to educate the society that HIV patients can be loved, cared and live a normal life.
Blogs: The blogs are an occasional series of reflective posts about social media use in support of messages for the national health AIDS awareness. The blogs can cover different topics about health, diet, things to do, prevention and issues faced by people suffering from HIV.
#NYHAAD : The creation of NYHAAD is a step toward acknowledging and addressing the needs of young people in the HIV and AIDS response. https://twitter.com/search?f=realtime&q=%23NYHAAD&src=typd
