CDC Launches New CDC.gov Version to Improve Communications With Public

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has made changes to the CDC .gov website to address issues found during internal and external reviews made in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

As part of the CDC Moving Forward effort, the website was revamped to improve communications with the public and ensure users have better access to vital health information.

Before launching the new site, feedback from 3,000 users during a beta test in March were worked into the latest version, the CDC said.

According to the agency, the website features a new design that eliminates visual clutter and offers a better user experience and improved content to simplify how users find the data they need to make informed decisions.

Current featured topics on the website include bird flu, reducing risk for skin cancer and tuberculosis.

The CDC expects to make more site enhancements in the coming months to optimize web content, strengthen the speed and clarity of agency communications, and better meet the public’s health needs.
