Sexuality in Women Living with HIV

At the end of 2017, approximately 36.9 million people were estimated to live with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). In Sweden, approximately 7,500 people live with HIV, of whom 39% are women. HIV is a disease that can be transmitted sexually or by mother-to-child and therefore sexuality and childbearing are affected for women living with HIV.
