Efficacy of Assisted Partner Services for People who Inject Drugs in Kenya to Identify Partners with HIV and Hepatitis C

People who inject drugs are at increased risk of both HIV and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections but face barriers to testing and engagement in care. Assisted partner services are effective in locating people with HIV but are understudied among people who inject drugs.

A study, published in The Lancet Global Health, assessed whether assisted partner services could be used to find, test for HIV and HCV infections, and link to care the partners of people who inject drugs in Kenya.
