To mark World AIDS Day 2011 (December 1), a redesigned Web site has been released, along with the Spanish-language . These sister sites offer federally approved information on HIV treatment and research to health care providers, researchers, people affected by HIV/AIDS, and the public. Resources include medical practice guidelines, treatment and prevention research studies, educational materials for consumers, and information on approved and investigational HIV/AIDS-related drugs.
Information is available in both English and Spanish. AIDS and SIDA are services of the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), managed by the National Library of Medicine (NLM). NLM is the world’s largest medical library and a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Redesign of the sites was based on research on user needs and behaviors and focused on reorganization of content and improved navigation to make information easier to find.
Changes to the sites include:
· Creating a home page design that gives users a snapshot of the entire Web site, direct access to all site content, and the ability to search for information without having to click away from the home page.
· Creating a distinct Web address for SIDA-to make it easier for users to bookmark and for search engines to index SIDA.
AIDS welcomes feedback on the redesigned Web sites by e-mail (ContactUs@aidsinfo.nih.gov), phone (800-448-0440), or .
