The most common disease group

     HIV is primarily spread through sexual contact or through blood contact, and in Sweden in 2018, the most common ages among the transmitted was individuals from 30 to 39 years , and there were more transmissions among men than women.  

Increase in other sexually transmitted diseases

       The spread of HIV in Sweden is today restricted, to a large extent because of rapid diagnosis and efficient treatment to basically all transmitted. Furthermore, the long-term increase of chlamydia that has been going on for years seems to have stopped, and the number of chlamydia cases are decreasing. However, the spread of other sexually transmitting diseases have an opposite trend. The number of syphilis infection cases was increasing since 2014, and according to Folkhälsomyndigheten (the Public Health Agency of Sweden), it is especially worrying that the previously low spread of gonorrhea is increasing.
