HIV/AIDS in the Nordic region

CHAD logo dobbelt

How did the HIV/AIDS epidemic hit Scandinavia? What were the political and activist responses to the epidemic in the 1980s and 1990s? And how is the HIV preventive drug PrEP experienced and imagined in current medical and social landscapes? These are some of the questions that are investigated in a series of articles in Kvinder, Køn & Forskning's brand new special issue on "Scandinavian HIV/AIDS stories".

We launch the issue at Copenhagen Pride with a glass of cava and a series of short 5-10 minutes presentations by researchers from the University of Copenhagen who have contributed to the special issue, presenting the most important points from their research.
