This raised our curiosity concerning how immigrants/refugees are being treated when they arrive in Malmö and what are being done to stop hiv/aids from spreading further.We became very disappointed when we realised how little that is actually being done and how poorly the collaboration between the institutions are working. Even though they are well aware of the increase of hiv/aids in Malmö it seems like not much are being done. We are aware of the delicacy of this matter but want to underline the seriousness of the disease and remind people how important it is to work together and "Stop Hiv Now!" (Less)
