HIV/STI Partner Services

Partner Services

Notifying your sex and/or needle-sharing partners is one of the many FREE 
services offered by the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH).  Our highly-trained Partner Services professionals will help locate your current and past partners to let them know of their possible exposure to STIs and/or HIV.

In addition to helping you notify your partners, our Partner Services professionals will connect your partners with immediate testing, counseling, treatment, and referrals for other services. Partner Services staff can also link HIV-positive clients to care and treatment, risk-reduction counseling and information about other available assistance.

For individuals who test HIV-negative, Partner Services staff can provide information or referrals to prevention counseling and other services that can help people learn to reduce their risk of getting STIs and HIV.
