EMIS-2017

Because we know you are committed to getting the best sex that makes you feel good, we want to introduce you to an online questionnaire about sex, health and relationships, targeting men who have sex with men.

Så arbetar RFSL med hälsa och hiv-prevention

RFSL has worked with issues about HIV and sexuality since the HIV epidemic started in Sweden, 1982. We work with a sexual positive HIV prevention that targets the groups that are most affected by HIV and sexually transmitted infections and to strengthen all LGBTQ people’s health.

Mental health

LGBTQ people are more exposed to mental illness and more often have suicidal thoughts than do heterosexual cis people. RFSL wants the authorities, healthcare and society as a whole to acknowledge this act and take specific measures to improve the situation for LGBTQ people.

HIV

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a virus that weakens the body’s immune system and was discovered around 1980. Today, most of the people who are HIV positive in Sweden have access to good and effective treatment, but HIV still cannot be cured.

PrEP - medications that prevent HIV

PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis for HIV) is drugs against HIV that an HIV negative person can take to avoid contracting HIV. PrEP is approved and can be administered by doctors in Sweden today. However, the high costs of the drugs and the follow up treatment means that the access to PrEP is still low.

Smittfri hiv

Nästan alla som vet att de lever med hiv i Sverige idag - 95 procent - har smittfri hiv. Det har man när man får behandling…

Testnings- påminnelse

För dig som är man och har sex med andra män eller för dig som är transperson finns RFSL:s testningspåminnelse. Det är en SMS-tjänst där du kan få påminnelse per SMS när det är dags att testa sig för hiv och könssjukdomar.

Trans Care

Many trans people need care and treatment in order for the body to better correspond to the gender identity.

HIV and Health Projects

RFSL's outreach work with HIV and health consists of the Sexperts' Chat, the Newly Arrived LGBTQ People's Health project, Testpoint, and various different workshops.

Donating Blood

Since the HIV epidemic began in Sweden, there have been certain rules for blood donation.

 

 

Hiv i smittskyddslagen

Informationsplikt är en av flera förhållningsregler som personer som lever med hiv måste följa enligt den gällande smittskyddslagen. Informationsplikten kräver att den som lever med hiv ska informera sina sexpartners om sin hiv. Läs här om RFSL:s syn på detta.

Disability

Through Funkisprojektet, RFSL wants to create better opportunities for LGBTQ people with disabilities and raise awareness about compulsory ableism.
