Background and Brief Description

The National Center for HIV, Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) proposes a survey data collection to assess the CDC National Prevention Information Network's (NPIN) Web site, products and services. The CDC NPIN serves as the U.S. reference, referral, and distribution service for information on HIV/AIDS, STDs, TB and viral Hepatitis. Products and services offered by the CDC NPIN Web site is the primary channel used by the CDC to provide information concerning prevention, treatment, and care of HIV, STD, TB, and viral Hepatitis to its prevention partners, stakeholders, and other constituents.

The CDC NPIN Web site includes several searchable databases that can be used to locate information about testing centers, funding opportunities, upcoming conferences, educational materials, and news. The Web site is a widely used service by the public, with more than 54 million hits and 3 million visits recorded since August 2004. Following enhancements to the website completed in February 2006, 22,886,855 hits and 1,349,318 visits have already been recorded from February to November 2006. In addition to the Web site, consumers can access information Start Printed Page 56764and order materials and resources by phone using the NPIN toll-free reference and referral line or electronic mail system. As of January 25, 2007, over 370,000 unique requests for materials have been logged and 4,561,186 materials have been ordered by the public.

The evaluation will be accomplished by survey data collection from users of the CDC NPIN Web site and users of CDC NPIN products and services. Organizations that do not have access to the Internet will be administered the survey by phone.

There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annual burden hours are 2,525.
