An interview study with migrants living with HIV in Sweden

Research project Migrants living with HIV in Sweden may have complex and high support needs from the society including healthcare services. However, research on their experiences about living with HIV in Sweden is very limited. Moreover, the group is very heterogeneous and includes people of different cultures, ages, genders, sexual orientation, levels of education, which can affect how they experience the encounter with health care and other public services, and how their needs are being met.

The project is carried out as a qualitative interview study with migrants living with HIV in Sweden. The aim is to explore migrants' own experiences of living with HIV in Sweden with a focus on their encounter with health care, social services and other public services. The results from the study can serve as a basis for national, regional and local actors who meet and implement interventions targeting people living with HIV so that they can improve health and living conditions among migrants living with HIV in Sweden.
