摘要

Partner notification (PN) is an important method for controlling the AIDS epidemic worldwide. Here, we looked into the differences between two PN counseling modes for HIV (+) men who have sex with men in Taiwan. Using random assignment, we placed 42 of the 84 subjects into the experimental group where they received two sessions of PN counseling, while the control group (42) received only one session. All 84 subjects were single males with an average age of 28.06. The mean number of successful notified partner was 5.38 (SD = 3.44) in the experimental which was statistically significantly higher than 2.81 (SD = 1.62) in the control group (β = 0.650, p = 0.000). The notification success rate was 77.13 % in the experimental and 74.21 % in the control group (IRR 1.039, 95 % CI 0.83–1.30). In the experimental and control group, the average number of the partners accepted an HIV test was 1.86 (SD = 1.58) and 0.79 (SD = 0.66) (β = 0.601, p = 0.000), and 39.74 and 27.27 % of the tested partners were HIV positive (IRR 1.457, 95 % CI 0.69–3.06). The study results may be used to improve the policies and practices for PN and contact follow-up.
