Partners are the key to prevention
Partner Services is a program (also known as “PNAP”) conducted by the Health Deparment that assists people with HIV plan how to best notify sex and/or needle sharing partners of a possible exposure to HIV. Partner Services is totally voluntary and confidential.
Partner Services will help patients who want to tell partners on their own. Patients can also choose to have our staff inform their partners. Utilizing the staff protects the patients’ anonymity.
Partner Services is for people newly diagnosed with HIV or those who have been aware of their HIV status for some time.
