Welcome to hividag.se
Living with HIV in Sweden today is not like it was yesterday. The treatment of HIV is now so effective that it can reduce virus levels to practically zero and minimise the risk of transmission. Today, HIV is no longer a fatal disease but a chronic, treatable infection. With prompt intervention, you can expect to live for as long as you would have done without HIV.
A growing number of people in Sweden now live with HIV, yet ignorance about what this means can lead to discrimination. This is why we need to increase public awareness. At hividag.se you can find out more about what life is like for people with HIV today.
Sweden’s Public Health Agency is the national coordinator of HIV prevention, a task that also includes reducing the stigma and discrimination associated with the infection. Within this framework, it is running a national information campaign about HIV in Sweden.
