HIV in the family

Today, 130 children live with HIV in Sweden and in addition, there are many children in families where one or both parents are living with HIV. Regardless of who is living with HIV, the whole family is affected.

Noaks Ark Stockholm has produced a series of support materials to help and make it easier to talk about HIV with children. The material speaks to children, young people, and adults in the form of books, films, and a web application that connects conversations and facts about HIV in an everyday and imaginative way. You can familiarize yourself with the material below. You can also order the material in physical form to have at home.

You can listen to the Noaks Ark’s podcast where Vendela Hagås, pediatric nurse and family therapist, talks about the various challenges faced by families living with HIV. She also talks about the unique material that has been produced to make it easier to talk to children and young people about HIV.
