Case 5: Partner Notification and Counseling Services for HIV

You answered:

D On average, fewer than 20 patients diagnosed with HIV need to be interviewed to identify a undiagnosed case of HIV.

This answer is correct. Approximately 14 patients with newly diagnosed HIV need to be interviewed to identify one partner who was unaware of his or her HIV infection. Thus, PCRS is an important means of identifying patients with undiagnosed HIV.
