Researchers will conduct a 2-arm pilot randomized controlled trial with HIV-infected index patients recruited from two all-male prisons in Indonesia to assess the acceptability and feasibility of provider-assisted HIV partner notification (provider referral) and examine its potential to increase the number of partners who are tested for HIV and subsequently linked to prevention and treatment services.
This study compares three options for partner notification:
- Option 1 (Self-tell): Participant is encouraged to disclose his HIV+ status to his partner(s) and given information about sites where his partner(s) can receive free HIV testing.
- Option 2 (Tell together): Participant discloses his HIV+ status to his partners with a counselor (project staff) present. Counselor refers the partner to HIV testing, including a study-affiliated HIV testing site.
- Option 3 (Provider referral): Project staff (nurse or peer educator) will notify the partner anonymously - without identifying the participant (index patient). Partners are offered immediate HIV testing in their home or at a study-affiliated HIV testing site.
