AIDS.gov Redesign Enhances Smartphone Accessibility
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has redesigned AIDS.gov, the gateway to all federal HIV/AIDS information, InformationWeek reports. The new look and feel enhances accessibility for smartphones and other new media. Responsive web design, the method used to update the site, allows content to work well on both a laptop screen and a smartphone, automatically adjusting its size to fit the screen. As a result, content is accessible via all devices without the extra cost of designing and maintaining separate “standard” and “mobile” sites. According to an HHS statement, AIDS.gov is among the first federal sites to use responsive design as part of the Obama administration’s new Digital Government Strategy to deliver better digital services.
