HIV/AIDS: Interventions to Identify HIV-Positive People Through Partner Notification – by Provider Referral

Description of Resource: 
The Community Preventive Services Task Force recommends provider referral partner notification to increase HIV testing and identification of previously undiagnosed HIV-positive individuals. Partner counseling and referral services involve notifying partners of HIV exposure, after which they are (ideally) tested and receive prevention or risk reduction counseling or enter into care (if they test positive).
