Welcome to Noaks Ark Småland & Halland!

Noaks Ark Småland & Halland works to increase the well-being and quality of life of people living with HIV and preventing the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs). By raising awareness and knowledge about HIV, STIs and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), we can alleviate the vulnerability of people living with HIV in society and counteract exclusion, stigma and discrimination.

The association works with three main tasks:

  • Psychosocial support for people living with HIV and their close ones
  • Prevention with information and education on HIV, STI, SRHR issues and social aspects
  • Rapid response HIV test and distribution of self-sampling kit for chlamydia and gonorrhea

Noaks Ark Småland & Hallands activity area is Kronobergs län, Hallands län, Region Jönköpings län and Kalmar län.
