Assisted Partner Notification: Closing the Gap on the First “90
*Recommended Audience: Mid-Level Professionals and Experienced Professionals
Partner notification (PN) is a critical strategy for helping countries meet the UNAIDS “90-90-90” goals by 2020. In this session, participants will receive an overview of PN. This will include the recently-issued World Health Organization guidelines on PN, and will cover Jhpiego programs to support PN, funded by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). Participants will learn about the results of the AIDSFree Project’s eight-country assessment on HIV PN policies and programs—funded by PEPFAR through USAID— including best practices and implementation challenges. Participants will then be divided into small groups (~5-7 people per group) for a facilitated human-centered design exercise to identify key themes around PN implementation challenges from the client, partner, and provider perspectives.
Speakers: Kristina Grabbe, Jhpiego; Catherine Thompson, Abt Associates
