Webinar: Swipe Right: Including Dating Apps in Partner Services
August 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Most individuals are online and own smart phones. Not surprisingly, many are meeting sex partners via dating websites and apps. As a result, individuals may only know their sexual partner by their profile name or email address and as such, the internet or other digital mediums become essential to finding and notifying a partner of exposure to STIs, including HIV. In light of this, public health professionals must also learn how to navigate these tech platforms.
- Explain how health department staff can incorporate technology into partner services.
- Identify strategies for using technology for partner services, including partner notification and prevention messaging.
- Describe STI prevention strategies that are already available through phone apps.
