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)

Plusverket - 2 day summercourse in peer support
Interested in meeting others living with HIV and learning more about peer support?

Welcome to Plusverket's 2-day course in peer support!

We mix lectures with practical exercises and socializing. The course begins with a background to peer support and how it can contribute to a better life with HIV. We will also touch on openness and how to talk about your HIV status to others, as well as to receive and provide peer support. After completing the course, you have the opportunity to become a peer mentor for someone else living with HIV.

The meeting also provides an opportunity to join a network and exchange tips and advice. The course is held in Malmö and is led by a person living with HIV.

We offer lunch and dinner on Saturday and lunch on Sunday. We also arrange a simple evening excursion on Saturday evening. For those of you who live outside Malmö, we cover travel costs, as well as the overnight stay between Saturday and Sunday. The course is free and open to whoever living with HIV in southern Sweden. The number of seats is limited and regulated by the Covid-19 restrictions.
