Proposed Project Resources and Services for the CDC National Prevention Information Network—Revision—National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, & TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) proposes to continue data collection for the Resources and Services Database of the CDC National Prevention Information Network and is requesting a 3-year approval of this revised information collection request (ICR). The CDC, NCHHSTP program has the primary responsibility within the CDC and the U.S. Public Health Service for the prevention and control of HIV infection, viral hepatitis, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and tuberculosis (TB), as well as for community-based HIV prevention activities, syphilis and TB elimination programs. To support NCHHSTP’s mission and to link Americans to prevention, education, and care services, the CDC National Prevention Information Network (NPIN) serves as the U.S. reference, referral, and distribution service for information on HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, STDs, and TB. NPIN is a critical member of the network of government agencies, community organizations, businesses, health professionals, educators, and human services providers that educate the American public about the grave threat to public health posed by HIV/ AIDS, viral hepatitis, STDs, and TB, and provides services for persons infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Established in 1988, the NPIN Resources and Services Database contains entries on approximately 9,000 organizations and is the most comprehensive listing of HIV/AIDS, STD and TB resources and services available throughout the country. This database describes national, state and local organizations that provide services related to HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, STDs, and TB, services such as counseling and testing, prevention, education and support. The NPIN reference staff relies on the Resources and Services Database to respond to thousands of requests each year for information or referral from community based organizations, state and local health departments, and health professionals working in HIV/AIDS, STD and TB prevention. The CDC–INFO (formerly the CDC National AIDS Hotline) staff also uses the NPIN Resources and Services Database to refer up to 110,000 callers each year to local programs for information, services, and treatment. The American public can also access the NPIN Resources and Services database through the NPIN Web site. More than 56 million hits by the public to the Web site are recorded annually. A representative from each new organization identified will be administered the resource organization questionnaire via the telephone. Representatives may include registered nurses, social and community service managers, health educators, or social and human service assistants. As part of the verification process for organizations currently included in the Resources and Services Database, about 33 percent of the organization’s representatives will receive a copy of their current database entry by electronic mail, including an introductory message and a list of instructions. The remaining 70 percent will receive a telephone call to review their database record. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annual burden hours are 1,882.

If not, provide specific information and references that should be considered. (2) Is there additional scientific information related to the issues of the proposed NIOSH carcinogen policies that should be considered for inclusion? If so, provide information and specify references for consideration. Is there any discussion in the document that should be omitted? (3) Is the proposed carcinogen classification policy explained in a clear and transparent manner? Is the basis for the proposed policy adequately explained? If not, specify (section, page, and line number) where clarification is needed. (4) Are there issues relevant to the classification of occupational carcinogens that have not been adequately addressed in this proposed policy? If so, provide information and specify references for consideration. (5) NIOSH adapted the OSHA Hazard Communication Table Relating Approximate Equivalences among IARC, NTP RoC, and GHS Carcinogenicity Classifications (Appendix F, Part D, OSHA Globally Harmonized System for Hazard Communication) to provide a simple, systematic method of determining GHS cancer hazard categories. However, NIOSH has further considered the GHS carcinogen categories 1B and 2 because NTP classification reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen and IARC classification 2B have criteria that overlap the two GHS categories.
