Welcome to the New Face of CDC.gov

New CDC Design Adjusts to Any Screen SizeYou'll notice that things don't look like they used to! We hope you'll like what you see. 

Tell Us What You Think
Over the last few months, we’ve been working to redesign the face of CDC.gov. We’ve listened to user research and scrutinized metrics to learn what’s working on the homepage and how we can improve. We’re always interested in your opinions and we’d love to know your thoughts.Tell us what you think of the new homepage.

New Design Adjusts to Any Screen Size
Our new home page is "responsive," which basically means that it automatically optimizes the design for your phone, tablet, laptop, or widescreen computer. So you can say good-bye to having one version of CDC.gov on your computer and another on your mobile device. We will now have one homepage so that you can enjoy this experience however you access CDC digitally.

You’ll also see this approach appearing across the entire website as more and more of our pages are moved into this new template.

Outside the Box

The new homepage provides more space to focus on key features and to provide you with quick tips and data related to the feature.

Larger feature: We heard from you, our users, that you wanted more from our features, so we included an area for tips, data, or even an infographic in the large feature.

What’s New Section: The What’s New section also provides an area to highlight key issues and give you quick snippets of information directly on the homepage.

News You Can Use

You also told us that you wanted to find a quick list of outbreaks and news so you know what’s going on.

We also included a new section on the page called “CDC in Action” to feature work around the agency.

Quick Access to Topics

While the new homepage focuses on current events, it also offers you quick access to content and helps surface many of the most popular topics we know our users are looking for.

New Direction Based on Your Feedback

All of the changes are significant, and we owe many thanks to you, our users, who gave us such great feedback.

We're always evolving and trying to improve. So, tell us what you think of the new changes.
