NAT’s report argues that HIV partner notification can be highly effective in diagnosing people with HIV (with significant benefits for personal and public health), and makes the case for better prioritising and performing partner notification for HIV than is currently the case.
It seeks to address current barriers to better practice around HIV partner notification – including those faced by Sexual Health Advisers – and outlines steps that need to be taken at a national and local level in order to ensure high quality, consistent and cost-effective HIV partner notification across the UK.
The report makes a wide range of detailed recommendations, covering data gathering, auditing, standards and good practice, commissioning, technology and messaging. SSHA will review, discuss and implement recommendations from the report.
