Living well with hiv

-since 1987

Positiva Gruppen Syd (The Positive Group South) is an association based in Malmö for people living with or affected by hiv in southern Sweden.

Despite that undetectable hiv does not transmit – hiv still carries a risk of stigma, shame and loneliness. Our mission is to provide knowledge and a network built on camaraderie for all people living with hiv. We primarily work in Skåne, Blekinge, Halland and southern Småland. If you live in Malmö, Lund, Helsingborg, Kristianstad, Karlskrona, Halmstad and other places in southern Sweden we are there for you. Our organization is open and allows everyone to be themselves. So regardless of who you are –  welcome to Positiva Gruppen Syd!

Plusverket is a method and resource for living well with HIV, or for professionals who work with people living with HIV, and want to offer the target group education and a network for support. Read more about Plusverket and take a look at our method book at (Swedish only)

Upcoming activities

Breathwork - breathing techniques and relaxation
A warm welcome to a session in breathwork, first timer as previous participants!

We meet at Manfrinato Health Center where we meet Josefin (YogiJo) who will introduce us to breathwork. We will be guided through various breathing exercises so that you can explore your breath and experience energy and relaxation at the same time. The session lasts about 75 minutes, followed by a refreshing smoothie.

To participate, email: or 0722 229161

So what is breathwork? Breathwork is a collective name for various techniques of breathing exercises. Our breath is like a remote control for our nervous system and the more we get to know it, the better we can use it to accelerate, brake and balance. If you are up to speed, you can relax with your breath and if you need energy, you can breathe into the system.

Effects of Breathwork? Consciously controlling your breathing has many benefits. It positively affects the nervous system, blood pressure and hormonal system. It can also reduce the amount of stress in the body and at the same time give you a better sense of how exactly you can use your breath to influence your mood.

To think about: You must be able to lie down comfortably. Keep a blanket handy in case you get frozen. Maybe a pillow under the knees and maybe an eye mask. It's YOUR moment, so make it comfortable and relaxed. (carpets, blankets and pillows are available on site to borrow. If you prefer your own things, you are of course free to bring them with you.)
