This report examined results of a prospective partner series study conducted in North Carolina and of an in depth evaluation of one of the partner networks. The approach for partner services used involved contacting partners of individuals newly diagnosed with HIV infection and using sexual and social networks and molecular phylogenetic data to improve the continuum of HIV care among black men who have sex with men (MSM). Partner services were provided to 30 black HIV infected MSM who named 95 sex partners and social contacts of whom 39 previously had been diagnosed with HIV infection.
This report, based on a rapid community assessment, is meant to be a guide for improvements in HIV prevention, treatment,and supportive services for the Latino gay, bisexual, and men who have sex with men in the Twin Cities metro area.
