The recommendations have been published in a separate Ex-pert Report (Rosenbrock et al. 2009). [...] 1. How can Switzerland minimize HIV transmission? 2. How can Switzerland assure timely testing of persons infected with HIV, referral for treatment and support services as well as continuity of care? 3. What would be the best governance in the Swiss HIV policy system in terms of division of labour, resources and incentives? These three questions guided the assessment accomplished. [Authors, p. 1, 3]
