Proposed Data Collections Submitted for Public Comment and Recommendations, 71536-71537 [E5-6670]

Download as PDF 71536 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 228 / Tuesday, November 29, 2005 / Notices (SFACES) have shown that a strategy that combines local outreach efforts and paid/earned media efforts is effective. However, CDC does not anticipate budgetary increases that could make a national-level Spanish language campaign possible. Also, CDC is concerned that the SFACES campaign materials, which were developed in 1999, may be becoming ‘‘dated.’’ While CDC has no hard evidence that they are no longer effective, CDC does want to examine their effectiveness in a robust manner before decisions are made about whether to keep using them in outreach efforts in selected communities throughout the U.S. CDC is also interested in developing a deeper understanding of sub-groups of women within the Spanish-speaking Hispanic population and developing effective communication strategies for reaching them. This project includes a systematic communication research and product development process involving, and ultimately serving, Spanish-speaking Hispanic women. These activities include: a. Developing a multivariate audience-segmentation scheme using existing data from Spanish-speaking Hispanic women; b. Assessing the effectiveness of current campaign materials with the identified audience segments; c. Conducting qualitative research with audience segments; d. Developing audience profiles for each audience segment; e. Developing draft communication plans based on audience profiles that outlines potential outreach strategies; f. Presenting the possibilities to key internal and external stakeholders to solicit input; g. Developing and testing concepts, messages, and materials along with implementation plans for their use; and, h. Producing master quality copies of each material in formats that CDC and partners can use for mass production and dissemination. Since the 60 day Federal Register notice on this project was published, the first step—developing a multivariate audience-segmentation scheme using existing data from Spanish-speaking Hispanic women—has been completed. Three distinct audience groups of Spanish-speaking Hispanic women of childbearing age have been identified as needing extra outreach efforts, so they are the focus of this request. The three groups are: (1) Unacculturated mothers (Spanishspeaking Hispanic women between the ages of 26–35 years old, who have less than a high school education and report having a child), (2) Unacculturated young adults (Spanish-speaking Hispanic women between the ages of 18–25 years old who have less than a high school education and report NOT having a child), and (3) Acculturated young adults (Acculturated young adults are Spanishspeaking Hispanic women between the ages of 18–24 who have a high school education and report not having any college education and not having any children). The annual burden table has been updated to reflect research activities in all three of these important audience segments. There are no costs to the respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 935.

Proposed Project

    Surveys of Past HIV Prevention Technology Transfer Efforts--New--
National Center for HIV, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHSTP), Centers for 
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The purpose of these surveys is to study the effectiveness of 
providing HIV prevention agencies with packages intervention, training, 
and technical assistance to ensure the agencies' maintenance of the 
intervention. CDC will use the results of the surveys to develop a 
national program for dissemination and support of packaged 
interventions that will increase the likelihood that agencies will 
conduct them with total fidelity for several years. The respondents are 
staff members of 16 prevention agencies that implemented one of five 
unique, packaged interventions between 1997 and 2000 as part of CDC's 
ongoing Replicating Effective Programs (REP) project.
    A survey will be administered over the telephone to agency 
administrators of the 16 prevention agencies that implemented 
intervention packages by the REP project. Additional surveys will be 
administered in-person to one Intervention Supervisor and two 
Intervention Facilitators at agencies that are continuing to implement 
the REP-packaged intervention. The objectives of the surveys include, 
but are not limited

[[Page 71537]]

to (a) identification of factors associated with maintenance and 
termination of REP-packaged interventions; (b) determination of why and 
how agencies adapted the packaged interventions; (c) examination of the 
impact of elapsed time on maintenance of the intervention and fidelity 
to intervention protocols; (d) identification of any differences 
between the type of agency (e.g., community-based organization or 
health department) on maintenance and fidelity; (e) identification of 
any difference between the type of original researcher (e.g., academic 
or non-profit) on maintenance and fidelity; (f) identification of 
perceived and actual benefits as well as instrumental and conceptual 
utility of REP-packaged interventions that can be used in marketing the 
intervention packages to other HIV prevention providers. Researchers 
administering the in-person surveys will also assess fidelity to 
intervention protocols by observing facilitators delivering the 
intervention and by recording their observations on a checklist 
designed for the particular intervention being observed.
    Survey questionnaire data will be collected once from each 
respondent (i.e., agency administrator, intervention supervisor, 
intervention facilitator). CDC is requesting OMB approval to collect 
this data for one year. There are no costs to the respondents other 
than their time. Total burden hours for this data collection are 105 
hours.
