These training materials from the APS Scale-Up implementation trial in western Kenya were designed to provide in-depth background and instruction for the delivery of partner notification services for health care workers. The five-day workshop provides an introduction to partner notification services and its integration into national HIV testing services and addresses ethical issues, step-by-step procedures, prevention of social harms, contact tracing, follow-up procedures, managing resistance and safety of staff, electronic data collection, and communication and counseling strategies. It integrates the Kenyan national partner notification services training with additional topics and study-specific materials (both available separately as part of Knowledge Base). This trial is being conducted by investigators at the University of Washington in partnership with PATH and the Kenyan Ministry of Health.
