    "This guidance is intended to assist state and local health department HIV prevention cooperative agreement grantees and HIV prevention community planning groups in planning, implementing, and evaluating the services provided to persons living with HIV and their sex and needle-sharing partners. External consultants and CDC staff collaborated in the development of this guidance, which is intended to supplement current CDC cooperative agreement guidance for HIV prevention programs. The development process included input based on reviews of the relevant scientific literature, actual program experience, and expert recommendations from within and outside CDC. This guidance uses new terminology to label the process of reaching and serving sex and needle-sharing partners. As opposed to contact tracing and partner notification, the term partner counseling and referral services (PCRS) is used in this document because it better reflects the type and range of public health services that are recommended for sex and needle-sharing partners. These services are vital to any community's HIV prevention efforts. This guidance should assist in developing programs, planning services, or prioritizing resource allocation for PCRS, and state and local programs supported with CDC funds should adapt it to meet their local policies, needs, and circumstances. The principles listed on the following pages constitute the basis for PCRS and are applied to issues discussed throughout this document. Principles 1-11 apply to partner counseling and referral services associated with partner services for all sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV. Principles 12-13 apply to partner counseling and referral services associated with HIV in particular." - preface
