Please join us for our next NIPS quarterly call on December 8 at 2 pm ET. This call will highlight TellYourPartner.org (TYP), an online anonymous partner notification tool. In this session, NCSD will provide an overview of the TYP site and its use, including additional enhancements such as the brand-new Spanish site and print materials in both English and Spanish. We will also hear from STD programs around the country about how they are using TellYourPartner.Org as a partner services tool.
Disease Intervention Specialists (DIS) serve a critical role in reporting and controlling the spread of STDs. To continue providing technical assistance and facilitate peer-to-peer sharing, CDC’s Division of STD Prevention, Using Technology to Advance STI Prevention (UTASP) Group and the National Coalition of STD Directors are partnering to host the National Internet Partner Services (NIPS) Workgroup quarterly calls for technology-based partner services. These calls provide peer-to-peer support and information sharing on the use of technology for partner services through case studies, presentations, overviews of specific websites, and new social technology tools and discussions.
