Today, the CDC unveiled its newly revamped website, marking a significant step forward in the agency’s commitment to better communicate with the public. Internal and external reviews of agency operations were conducted after the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. The result was the CDC Moving Forward effort, which launched numerous initiatives to strengthen the speed and clarity of agency communications. The newly streamlined website is the culmination of extensive user testing and feedback, ensuring that vital health information is more accessible and easier to find for all audiences.

CDC’s experts help protect lives and livelihoods by providing timely, easy-to-find health information. The redesign features improved content that is labeled by audience, less clutter, a better user experience and a new look and feel. Through sophisticated site auditing, CDC streamlined the website content by over 65% to make it easier for users to find the information they need to make informed decisions about their health. The content throughout the site has also been written to better meet user needs.

CDC received, and incorporated, feedback from over 3,000 users during a beta preview in March which gave partners and the public an opportunity to explore the new website and provide feedback prior to today’s launch. Throughout 2024, expect CDC to continue improving and optimizing its web content, reflecting CDC’s ongoing dedication to serving the public’s health needs.
