Abstract [en]

In 2018, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) remains a social stigma in many different cultures. In Sweden because of the advanced treatment for HIV (Smittskyddsinstitutet, 2012) and people's attitude towards it (Danziger, 1999), it is less stigmatized when compared to other societies. Since 2003 the annual number of people who immigrate to Sweden is increasing drastically. A significant amount of people come to Sweden from different cultures with different backgrounds. In today’s Swedish society, immigrants make up a portion of the population that cannot be neglected. The Swedish healthcare system is not ready for this demographic change. The social stigma of HIV along with other things, like anxiety and fear of positive test result, create barriers of not taking an HIV test. Looking into deficiencies of current HIV testing services by field research that helps to understand reasons behind the dilemma. Research methods also include literature review, statistics analysis, interview, and workshop.

The purpose of this project is to create a more inclusive healthcare system for immigrants in Sweden. What the design outcome of this project is a service design proposal for HIV testing providers in Sweden with a focus on immigrants.
