Implementation of the NPHS in the cantons

For prevention assessments on HIV and STI prevention in the cantons of Geneva and Zurich, see below. 

Prevention assessment in the Canton of Zurich

An assessment of sexual health in the Canton of Zurich conducted in 2012 analyses the development of HIV/AIDs, STI and hepatitis infection prevention in the Canton of Zurich (see download below). Recommendations are made on the basis of the National Strategy NPHS concerning HIV and STI prevention and further developments which will turn the complex and poorly coordinated system involving various stakeholders into an evidence-based, state-controlled system are explained. Since Zurich is the canton hardest hit by the HIV epidemic after Geneva, this assessment is of particular importance.

Prevention assessment in the Canton of Geneva

An assessment conducted in 2012 analyses the prevention of HIV and STI in the Canton of Geneva and sets out recommendations based on the NPHS National Strategy (see download below).
