CDC’s content syndication catalog has recently expanded to over 1,300 pages. New pages include the following critical topics:
Content syndication is a technical application that allows CDC partners to display CDC health and safety information on their own Web sites. The content is automatically updated so that when CDC updates the information, the changes are automatically made on the partner's Web site. This tool is an easy and cost-free way to provide credible, science-based health information.
All topics are available for viewing in the online catalog. Visit CDC’s Content Syndication page to obtain additional information on content syndication self-registration, page selection process or to request additional pages to be syndicated.
