We describe the implementation of index testing and PNS under the Zimbabwe HIV Care and Treatment (ZHCT) project and the resulting uptake, HIV positivity rate and links to HIV treatment. METHODS: The ZHCT project has been implemented since March 2016, covering a total of 12 districts in three provinces. To assess the project's performance on index testing, we extracted data on HIV testing from the district health information system (DHIS 2) from March 2016 to May 2018, validated it using service registers and calculated monthly HIV positivity rates using Microsoft Excel. Data were disaggregated by district, province, s...

We describe the impact of a behavioural skills-building training to enhance healthcare workers' (HCWs) implementation of Malawi's passive ICF programme. METHODS: In June 2017, HCWs from 36 health facilities in Mangochi were oriented to Malawi's ICF programme and began implementation. In February and April 2018, a total of 573 HCWs from these facilities received further training from the Tingathe Programme. The training focused on eliciting more untested sexual contacts from indexes and better equipping indexes on issuing "family referral slips" to contacts. Monthly programmatic data were abstracted from clini...

CONCLUSIONS: aPNS among established HIV patients is associated with different barriers and opportunities than aPNS among newly diagnosed patients, and HCWs should build their capacity to support aPNS in this population. There is a strong need for increased training and sensitization on the use of aPNS in different circumstances and for different clients, taking into consideration factors such as timing of partner notification, characteristics of the relationship and duration of knowledge discordance. The overall success of this intervention among populations living with HIV may rely on customization of services and key mes...

CONCLUSIONS: Providers felt that the integration of PrEP into HIV care clinics stimulated the provision of PNS, and PNS was used to improve the identification of potential PrEP clients. The integrated combination of PNS, PrEP and ART is synergistic and should be promoted in HIV clinics. PMID: 31321911 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: Including aPN as part of community-led HTS for key populations and their partners is feasible and effective, particularly for reaching first-time testers and undiagnosed HIV clients. Scale-up of aPN within community-led HTS for key populations is essential for achieving the United Nations 90-90-90 targets in Vietnam. PMID: 31321903 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: aPNS is feasible, can be brought to scale, yields a high level of case identification, and is infrequently associated with social harms and intimate partner violence. PMID: 31321902 [PubMed - in process]

We describe the results from an APN intervention implemented within a programme focused on PLHIV and people who inject drugs in Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan. METHODS: Routine data from index cases and their partners were analysed from equal-length periods before and after APN launch. Prior to APN index cases could recruit partners using passive referral, and under APN, had their choice of passive referral or APN (provider, contract or dual-referral). We compared the demographic characteristics of index cases and their sexual/injecting partners from the pre-APN and APN periods, described the number/pro...
