To request more information on the below proposed project or to obtain a copy of the information collection plan and instruments, call 404–639–7570 or send comments to Leroy A. Richardson, 1600 Clifton Road, MS–D74, Atlanta, GA 30333 or send an email to omb@cdc.gov. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the subgroups or communities at greatest risk of infection. The current study addresses the need to assess the effectiveness of these social marketing messages aimed at increasing HIV awareness and delivering HIV prevention and testing messages among at-risk populations. This extension of an ongoing study will evaluate the Act Against AIDS (AAA) social marketing campaign aimed at increasing HIV/AIDS awareness, increasing prevention behaviors, and improving HIV testing rates among consumers. A total of 12,000 respondents were originally approved for this generic ICR (0920–0920) and since the original approval date, 1,250 respondents have participated in the surveys under the following mini ICRs: 0920–13AHP; 0920–13YR and 0920– 13DD. The information collected from each of the data collections were used to evaluate specific AAA campaign phases. We are requesting additional time to continue to survey other AAA target audiences and campaign phases and measuring exposure to each phase of the campaign and interventions implemented under AAA. Through this extension, we plan to reach the remaining approved 10,750 respondents. In order to obtain the remaining respondents, we anticipate screening approximately 17,915 individuals. Depending on the target audience for the campaign phase, the study screener will vary. The study screener may address one or more of the following items: race/ethnicity, sexual behavior, and sexual orientation. Each survey will have a core set of items asked in all rounds, as well as a module of questions relating to specific AAA activities and communication initiatives. Survey respondents will be selected from a combination of sources, including a national opt-in email list sample and respondent lists generated by partnership organizations (e.g., the National Urban League, the National Medical Association). A total of 10,750 participants will self-administer the survey at home on personal computers over a 3-year period. There is no cost to the respondents other than their time. quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information, to search data sources, to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information. Written comments should be received within 60 days of this notice.

ACTION: Notice. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing that a proposed collection of information has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and clearance under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. DATES: Fax written comments on the collection of information by December 22, 2014. ADDRESSES: To ensure that comments on the information collection are received, OMB recommends that written comments be faxed to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, OMB, Attn: FDA Desk Officer, FAX: 202–395–7285, or emailed to oira_ submission@omb.eop.gov. All comments should be identified with the SUMMARY: OMB control number 0910-New and title, ‘‘Risk and Benefit Perception Scale Development.’’ Also include the FDA docket number found in brackets in the heading of this document. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: FDA PRA Staff, Office of Operations, Food and Drug Administration, 8455 Colesville Rd., COLE–14526, Silver Spring, MD 20993–0002, PRAStaff@ fda.hhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance. Risk and Benefit Perception Scale Development (OMB Control Number 0910-New) Section 1701(a)(4) of the Public Health Service Act (PHS Act) (42 U.S.C. 300u(a)(4)) authorizes FDA to conduct research relating to health information. Section 1003(d)(2)(c) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 393(b)(2)(c)) authorizes FDA to conduct research relating to drugs and other FDA regulated products in carrying out the provisions of the FD&C Act. FDA requires that prescription drug advertisements be balanced in their presentation of risk and benefit information. Patients receive information on drugs not only from their doctors and pharmacies, through patient labeling and FDA-mandated Medication Guides, but also online, on social networks and via direct-toconsumer (DTC) television and print advertising. Moreover, research suggests that consumers struggle with the concepts of risk and efficacy (Ref. 1) and often overestimate drug efficacy (Ref. 2). As a result, it is important for FDA to understand and accurately measure how consumers are making sense of this information and how it impacts decisions related to prescription drugs. FDA’s Office of Prescription Drug Promotion (OPDP) has an active research program that investigates how DTC advertising influences consumer knowledge, perceptions, and behavior. As OPDP’s research program has matured, the way in which we measure risk and benefit perception has evolved over time. This has resulted in perception measures that, while internally valid, tend to vary by study. Consequently, FDA needs a pool of reliable and valid measurement items for assessing consumers’ drug risk and benefit perceptions—as well as other elements of prescription drug decision making—consistently across studies. The purpose of this project is to create that measurement pool, thus increasing the rigor and efficiency of FDA’s research. I. Design Overview We will conduct pretesting prior to main data collection to assess the psychometric properties and identify any measurement challenges (e.g., misinterpretation, lack of variance) with candidate measurement items. We also will use the pretesting to examine factors that may affect future study results and analyses (e.g., response scale midpoints, moderating variables). We will conduct two sequential pretest waves (n=500 per wave; n=1,000 total) with the following target populations: (1) Individuals diagnosed with chronic pain and (2) individuals diagnosed with hypertension.

Background and Brief Description

    In response to the continued HIV epidemic in our country, CDC has 
launched Act Against AIDS, a 5-year, multifaceted communication 
campaign to reduce HIV incidence in the United States. CDC plans to 
release the campaign in phases, with some of the phases running 
concurrently. Each phase of the campaign will use mass media and 
direct-to-consumer channels to deliver HIV prevention and testing 
messages. Some components of the campaign will be designed to provide 
basic education and increase awareness of HIV/AIDS among the general 
public, and others will be targeted to specific subgroups or 
communities at greatest risk of infection. The current study addresses 
the need to assess the effectiveness of these social marketing messages 
aimed at increasing HIV awareness and delivering HIV prevention and 
testing messages among at-risk populations.
    This extension of an ongoing study will evaluate the Act Against 
AIDS (AAA) social marketing campaign aimed at increasing HIV/AIDS 
awareness, increasing prevention behaviors, and improving HIV testing 
rates among consumers. A total of 12,000 respondents were originally

approval date, 1,250 respondents have participated in the surveys under 
the following mini ICRs: 0920-13AHP; 0920-13YR and 0920-13DD. The 
information collected from each of the data collections were used to 
evaluate specific AAA campaign phases. We are requesting additional 
time to continue to survey other AAA target audiences and campaign 
phases and measuring exposure to each phase of the campaign and 
interventions implemented under AAA. Through this extension, we plan to 
reach the remaining approved 10,750 respondents. In order to obtain the 
remaining respondents, we anticipate screening approximately 17,915 
individuals.
    Depending on the target audience for the campaign phase, the study 
screener will vary. The study screener may address one or more of the
