Project Country: United States
Contracting Agency and Office: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention
Danya provides extensive communication and education support to the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention's (NCHHSTP) National Prevention Information Network (NPIN). We help ensure that NPIN meets its objectives to: support the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and NCHHSTP in efforts to provide prevention partners with timely information and resources through innovative knowledge/information transfer solutions; connect public health partners through collaborative communication opportunities, innovative technology solutions, and quality customer service; provide access to carefully managed and updated online databases, information resources, and technical assistance; and support and apply digital innovation to enhancements that will bring prevention partners and stakeholders closer to maximizing the health impact of NCHHSTP's programs.
Our tasks on this project include marketing, outreach, and digital/social media channel management; health communication support and technical assistance for national health observances and other special health events; development and maintenance of mailing lists for key target audiences and stakeholders; content development, curation, and management for NPIN and GetTested websites; facilitation and support of partner engagement events; management of online social community for prevention partners, including moderation and development of content and engagement strategies; in-person and web-based training and technical assistance information development; and management scanning and implementation of new technologies and best practices in information resources and knowledge management.
Project Portfolio—NPIN Web and GetTested Websites
Danya recently spearheaded the major redesign of two NPIN websites, CDC NPIN and GetTested: National HIV, Viral Hepatitis, and STD Testing. Building both sites upon a Drupal web content management system, Danya staff made the sites responsive and customized with enhancements requested by prevention partners seeking increased opportunities to connect, share, and learn with peers. Danya integrated a social community into the new NPIN site, offering partners a place to discuss prevention challenges, share resources, and collaborate. We also made the entire site searchable in addition to mobile-accessible. The previous NPIN site's five searches became a single search, returning content in categories to reveal the breadth and depth of the site's content. For the GetTested site, Danya improved the power of visitors to locate testing sites through a new testing and support module, which will help user find local testing facilities as well as suggest sites based on search parameters such as age, gender, and sexual orientation.
