Partner-Notification

Partner Notification – What is it?

„Partner Notification“ means giving the information on an STI to the recent sexual partner(s) you had (a)sexual encounter(s) with. In order to avoid the so called „ping-pong-effect“ this is not only important for their sexual health to know but also for your own sexual health. In case of an acquired STI both or all of the partners need to be treated medically to prevent new or reinfections.

Partner Notification – How can I inform my partners?

We at „Walk In Ruhr“ encourage you and give you support to inform your partner(s) in different ways. This can also happen anonymously by using our electronic partner notification system via SMS or e-mail.

Partner Notification – How does it work?

On this site you can inform the people you recently had sexual encounters without having to make yourself of your infection known.

By using this service I agree with the following:

  • The SMS or e-mail will be sent anonymously to your chosen receiver(s). The sender will be „Walk In Ruhr“ (SMS) or partnernotification@wir-ruhr.de (e-mail).
  • Neither your IP-Adress nor the used telephonenumber or e-mail-adress will be saved
  • Any further use of the submitted contact information by WIR is not permitted.
  • The service is free of charge.
  • To prevent misuse you need a token.
  • You can get our token from a docctor, a health adviser or anyone working at the WIR personally via e-mail (wir@klinikum-bochum.de) or phone (+49 234 5098930).
