This study will examine whether the implementation of partner notification is a cost-effective option as part of sexually transmitted disease (STD) control activities and if so, determine the optimal way that the Louisiana STD Control Program should conduct partner notification. The findings of this project will help improve financing of STD control programs as well as resource allocation in STD control activities.
