Feds announce revamp of HIV/AIDS information resource

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has relaunched the redesigned website AIDS.gov. The site is the gateway to all federal HIV/AIDS information and resources. It was first launched in 2006 and over the years has added features, including a location-based search tool for HIV testing and care services.

There is additional information about HIV/AIDS in the workplace.

The new website uses “responsive Web design,” which automatically adjusts the size of the content to work equally well on a computer screen or smart phone.

Said assistant HHS secretary, Dr. Howard K. Koh, “Redesigning AIDS.gov using responsive Web design ensures that more Americans can easily access critical information about HIV/AIDS, including the latest news on the government’s efforts to usher in an AIDS-free generation.”

Visitors to the site will find the latest HIV/AIDS news; information on prevention, testing, treatment, and care; and federal resources. It also offers podcasts and a blog.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in five of the more than 1 million people living with HIV in the United States are unaware of their infection. As a result, they are unable to access life-extending care and may unknowingly pass the virus on to others.
