Partner Notification Services

It is important to notify your sex partner(s) or anyone you share needles with if you test positive for any STDs, HIV, or viral hepatitis.  Your partner(s) need to know that they may have been exposed so they can get tested and treated, if necessary.  If your partner is not informed and treated, you could get the infection again.  Learn about the several options you have to notify your partner(s).
