WE ARE HERE FOR EVERYONE
HIV-Sweden is here for every individual living with HIV and for their relatives in Sweden, regardless of who you are or where you live. We think everyone should have equal opportunities for their rights and for a good life with HIV. This is what HIV-Sweden, together with our members, always works towards.
EVERYONE IS AFFECTED BY HIV
HIV exists and anyone can get it – therefore we are all affected by HIV. Everyone has a responsibility to help reduce the spreading of HIV and prejudices surrounding it. Dare to talk to your friends, your family and your partner about HIV. There might be somebody close to you who is afraid to tell anyone that they have HIV. By talking about it you will help break the silence and the prejudices.
HUMAN RIGHTS ARE FOR EVERYONE
It is a human right to be able to be yourself in everyday life regardless of illnesses, and that is why discrimination against individuals living with HIV is against the law in Sweden. For everyone living with HIV in Sweden, we offer counseling through our ombudsman and auditor. We work to inform individuals living with HIV about rights and responsibilities, current questions about HIV and medical developments. We are available to answer any questions you have about HIV.
THIS IS US
HIV-Sweden is a non-profit and politically independent association, which, since 1990, works to improve the lives of people living with HIV. We are a national umbrella organization that joins regional and nationwide patient and support groups which are aimed at people living with HIV and at their families.
We work with legal advice, information, advocacy and campaigns at a national level, both against the general public, decision makers and politicians to constantly increase the rights of people living with HIV.
