About Partner Services

Partner services are a broad array of services that should be offered to persons with HIV or other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and their sexual or needle-sharing partners. By identifying infected persons, confidentially notifying their partners of their possible exposure, and providing infected persons and their partners a range of medical, prevention, and psychosocial services, partner services can improve the health not only of individuals, but of communities as well.

The following serve as the foundation for providing partner services:

  • Client centered.
  • Confidential.
  • Voluntary and non-coercive.
  • Free.
  • Evidence based.
  • Culturally, linguistically, and developmentally appropriate.
  • Accessible and available to all.
  • Comprehensive and integrative.
