Podcast Interview with Dr. Kyle Bernstein


At the 2013 STI and AIDS World Congress in Vienna last week, Dr. Kyle Bernstein from the San Francisco Department of Public Health presented the results of a study assessing the added value of Internet partner services for syphilis and HIV.

Dr. Bernstein is the Director of Applied Research, Community Health Epidemiology, and Surveillance in the Population Health Division of the San Francisco Department of Public Health.

He is also an Assistant Adjunct Professor in the Division of Epidemiology of the School of Public Health at the University of California-Berkeley.

Besides the podcast interview, the abstract of the presentation is attached as are the slides of the presentation itself.

Thanks, Kyle. I can see how a partner might get named again in the future, but I am not sure how you account for that on the table in your abstract. It seems like the first time they are named, if they are infected and brought to treatment, that is considered a "success among internet". But if named again later, they wouldn't be considered a "success among internet" unless they were again found to be infected and retreated. Is that right? So, I still don't see how your 7 in 2010 and 3 in 2011 could change based on something that happens in 2013.

Thanks for the great question Tom. At first we had the same thought, that IPS was less effective over time (see slide 10). But when we dug deeper, we found something different. Our integrated computer system allows the DIS to search on user handles and email addresses. So, over time, when a partner who was an IPS success in the past gets named again, they automatically convert into a "named" partner since the handle or email is associated with a name, address, phone in our system. Since we have a number of partners who get named in several investigations over time, it looked like the number of IPS partners declined (Slide 10) but in fact a number of these partners get named again (Slide 11). During the study period there were 112 of these partners. Hope this helps KB

Kyle, Thanks for posting the podcast and the abstract with the data. I wonder if IPN still works. It looks like, for syphilis, you found 109 partners in the first three years, but only 20 in the past three years (and only 3 in 2011). For HIV there was also a big drop-off. Am I reading that right? If so, I wonder if that means men have shifted from internet, where they know a parter's chat name, to apps where they don't even know that. Tom
