Despite ongoing efforts and resources dedicated to partner notification (PN) for sexually-transmitted and blood-borne infections (STBBIs), the incidence of STBBIs continues to rise in Canada, calling into question the effectiveness of PN in preventing and controlling the spread of STBBIs at the population level. High interest exists among public health specialists to access evidence-based material to inform STBBI PN programs in Canada.
To address the growing needs for knowledge translation around PN in Canada, NCCID has created a collection of resources, that include review of provincial and territorial acts, regulations and protocols related to PN for STBBIs, evidence reviews on various STBBI PN strategies, experiential PN practice and mathematical modeling for evaluating the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of different modes of PN. These resources are listed below.
