The CDC National Prevention Information Network (NPIN) a is the U.S. reference and referral service for information on HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and tuberculosis (TB). NPIN is a next-generation clearinghouse that collects and disseminates data and materials to support the work of prevention organizations and workers in international, national, state, and local settings.

Our services are designed to facilitate program collaboration in sharing information, resources, published materials, research, and trends among the four diseases; HIV, Tuberculosis, Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Viral Hepatitis.

HIV/AIDS Education and Outreach

Preventing the spread of HIV requires a comprehensive strategy that includes effective, sustained health education and health promotion programs. The goal of these programs is to reduce the risk of individuals becoming infected with HIV or, if already infected, infecting others.

TB Education and Training

Education and training about TB are essential for sustainable control programs. Training should be directed not only to healthcare providers but also to decision makers, especially those who influence health education curricula, and to the public. All these groups should be kept aware of TB, the goal of elimination, and the means to achieve the goal.

STD Education and Outreach

STD prevention requires changing the behaviors that place people at risk for infection. Therefore, prevention and control efforts must include effective, sustained education and outreach programs. The goal of these programs is to reduce the risk of individuals becoming infected with STDs or, if already infected, infecting others.
