It is important that people who have sexually transmitted infections (STI) inform their partners to get tested and treatment of sexually transmitted infections.

 Physicians should encourage patients to inform their partners about STI test, which would help to reduce the growing rate of sexually transmitted infections. Currently several sets of home STD are also available for test and partners can easily use them.

Partner notification is really an important factor in reducing sexually transmitted infections, but often several stigmas attached to the society poses hindrance.

The study was conducted on 12,389 patients including men and women with sexually transmitted infections like gonorrhea, chlamydia and non-specific urethritis.

Strategies were used in the study to make it suitable for patients to inform their partners and to assess responsibility of patients to their partners. In one such method, the patient is given a prescription for drugs and their partners, in another sample at home, and finally additional information to partners. expected

Strategy to have better results than just telling patients to encourage partners for treatment of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). This is called the direction of the patient. Patient referral often may produce good results if the patient gets added valuable information about the type of sexual disease and subsequently its test and treatment to tell it to their partners.

Patients need to be more aware of sexual disease and have to take care and responsibility to improve the sexual health of their partners. This aid in reducing the number of people suffering from these diseases.

Sexually transmitted infections (STI) is curable if treatment is given at the right time. If left untreated, it can lead to serious consequences, even death.
