The YWCA-YMCA of Sweden (Swedish: KFUK-KFUM Sverige) is the Swedish branch of the YMCA and the YWCA. It was established in 1966 following a merger of the YMCA of Sweden and the YWCA of Sweden.[2]

In 2011, the organization decided to use the term KFUM Sverige during promotion where M now stands for människor ("people") instead of män (men) as before.[3]

The YWCA-YMCA of Sweden has 40,000 members in 140 local associations.[4] Several Swedish YWCA-YMCA associations have been successful in sport.
