CDC Launches Redesigned Spanish Web Site
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Spanish-language Web site, CDC en Español, has been re-launched with a new look and new features that will make it more usable and functional.
"The redesigned CDC en Español represents a vital source of health promotion and information for Spanish speakers," said Dr. Julie L. Gerberding, Director of CDC. "CDC's ongoing commitment to public health worldwide is expressed through our efforts to provide translation of vital information into Spanish to better serve all of our audiences for information. About half of the 16 million Hispanics online in the United States have expressed preference for Spanish-language Web sites and we are pleased to offer this improved tool."
Modeled after the CDC.gov English–language site that launched in April 2007, the revised site has a more useful and powerful search engine, quick access to the 20 most–requested topics of information, a user–friendly A–through–Z index, and other features to help people locate needed health and science information more efficiently.
