HIV prevention campaign "LOVE LIFE – no regrets": the Swiss Federal Supreme Court rejected a complaint of 35 children and young people represented by their parents

In its judgement of June 15, 2018 (2C_601/2016), the Swiss Federal Supreme Court ruled that the HIV prevention campaign “LOVE LIFE – no regrets” of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) is deemded to be a so-called “real act” of an authority. According to the Federal Act on Administrative Procedure (APA), judicial review may only be sought if and when a real act of an administrative body affects rights and obligations of citizens. In the present case, this was denied by the Swiss Federal Supreme Court with convincing reasons.
