“Partner notification was historically performed on a face-to-face basis, but with populations moving to dating sites/apps, a new strategy for delivering disease outbreak interventions was necessary,” said Novak, who worked with Hsu during his time at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.Public health professionals trained by the CDC will set up partner notification profiles on Manhunt.

“We have seen the significant impact of state and local budget cuts in STD prevention programs,” the CDC's Bolan said.

On top of that, “tremendous cuts are being projected by the current administration,” Hsu said.

From 2014 to 2015 alone, the number of syphilis cases reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) rose by 17.7%, from 63,453 to 74,702.

Along with cuts in STD prevention and treatment resources and possibly more relaxed attitudes toward protection since the advent of life-saving HIV treatments, health experts think the influence of social media on how people meet sex partners may play a role in the upswing.

The White House’s 2018 budget proposed a 6.1 million reduction in funding for HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, STD and tuberculosis prevention.

Bolan said she is particularly concerned about syphilis: It was almost eliminated a decade ago, she said, but “now it is rising with all populations — men, women and newborns, and we are seeing these increases in every region of the country.” “We need to improve our screening and treatment,” she said.They then track down and notify those partners — discreetly, Hsu added, in a way that keeps the source of information anonymous.Hsu said this “on-the-ground” approach has encountered significant challenges in today’s world of dating apps.These profiles, which have a special logo, only contact users if they may have been exposed to an STD.“Contact investigation has evolved where we use newer tools,” Hsu said.Grindr, a gay dating app with 3 million daily active users, has a "Sexual Health” section on each user’s profile where the user can list HIV status and the last time they were tested.
