Passport to Partner Services
Passport to Partner Services is a national curriculum developed by CDC’s Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention and Division of STD Prevention, in collaboration with the National Network of STD/HIV Prevention Training Centers (NNPTC) – Partner Services and Program Support Centers. Launched in April of 2013, Passport provides training for disease intervention specialists (DIS) and other partner services providers including medical providers.
The Passport to Partner Services courses are based on the “Recommendations for Partner Services Programs for HIV Infection, Syphilis, Gonorrhea, and Chlamydial Infection” (MMWR Recommendations and Reports, November 07, 2008 /Vol. 57/no. RR-9).
It replaces the Employee Development Guide (EDG), Introduction to STD Intervention (ISTDI) and HIV Partner Counseling and Referral Services (PCRS) courses as the essential training for partner services providers offered by CDC and its training partners.
The Passport to Partner Services courses include both web-based self-study modules and a traditional classroom component. The curriculum is divided into four tracks, differentiated by job functions.
