Proposed Project Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. In addition, the PRA also requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each new proposed collection, each proposed extension of existing collection of information, and each reinstatement of previously approved information collection before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, we are publishing this notice of a proposed data collection as described below. 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 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 As of October 11, 2016, the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) Department of Health reported 1,320 Zika cases, in which 524 have been confirmed Zika cases. Ongoing Zika virus transmission in the USVI intensifies the urgent public health need to increase contraceptive access for women who choose to delay or avoid pregnancy as a primary strategy to reduce Zika-related adverse pregnancy and birth outcomes. Among the approximately 12,000 women at risk of unintended pregnancy (women of reproductive age, 18–44 years, who are sexually active and fertile, and not currently desiring a pregnancy) in the USVI, nearly half are not using highly or moderately effective contraception (long acting reversible methods [LARCs], including intrauterine devices [IUDs] and implants, or hormonal methods). In response to the continued impact of the Zika virus in the USVI, CDC is proposing to develop a comprehensive communication strategy to raise awareness that pregnancy prevention in women who choose to delay or avoid pregnancy is a primary strategy to reduce Zika-related adverse pregnancy and birth outcomes, as well as inform women about available contraceptive methods and services. To ensure the cultural appropriateness and relevance of this approach, CDC plans to conduct a formative assessment with women and men between the ages of 18 and 44 years in the USVI. The goal of this information collection request is to qualitatively assess current knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs regarding contraception use, in general, and related to Zika virus exposure, in particular, in the USVI. We will explore perceived barriers to accessing contraception and effective ways to provide messages about the contraceptive methods and services available. Additionally, we will seek information on acceptable messaging strategies, including message content and related imagery, effective channels for message dissemination, and appropriate spokespersons and partners.

Proposed Project

    Formative Assessment Regarding Contraception Use in the U.S. Virgin 
Islands (USVI) in the Context of Zika--New--National Center for HIV/
AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for 
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    As of October 11, 2016, the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) Department 
of Health reported 1,320 Zika cases, in which 524 have been confirmed 
Zika cases.
    Ongoing Zika virus transmission in the USVI intensifies the urgent 
public health need to increase contraceptive access for women who 
choose to delay or avoid pregnancy as a primary strategy to reduce 
Zika-related adverse pregnancy and birth outcomes. Among the 
approximately 12,000 women at risk of unintended pregnancy (women of 
reproductive age, 18-44 years, who are sexually active and fertile, and 
not currently desiring a pregnancy) in the USVI, nearly half are not 
using highly or moderately effective contraception (long acting 
reversible methods [LARCs], including intrauterine devices [IUDs] and 
implants, or hormonal methods).
    In response to the continued impact of the Zika virus in the USVI, 
CDC is proposing to develop a comprehensive communication strategy to 
raise awareness that pregnancy prevention in women who choose to delay 
or avoid pregnancy is a primary strategy to reduce Zika-related adverse 
pregnancy and birth outcomes, as well as inform women about available 
contraceptive methods and services. To ensure the cultural 
appropriateness and relevance of this approach, CDC plans to conduct a 
formative assessment with women and men between the ages of 18 and 44 
years in the USVI.
    The goal of this information collection request is to qualitatively 
assess current knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs regarding 
contraception use, in general, and related to Zika virus exposure, in 
particular, in the USVI. We will explore perceived barriers to 
accessing contraception and effective ways to provide messages about 
the contraceptive methods and services available. Additionally, we will 
seek information on acceptable messaging strategies, including message 
content and related imagery, effective channels for message 
dissemination, and appropriate spokespersons and partners.

[[Page 88243]]

    The intended use of the resulting data is for CDC to develop 
timely, relevant, clear, and engaging materials for the USVI regarding 
pregnancy prevention during the Zika outbreak.
    CDC will use focus groups to collect the data. This methodology 
provides flexible in-depth exploration of the participants' perceptions 
and experience and yield descriptions in the participants' own words. 
Furthermore, the facilitator will have flexibility to pursue relevant 
and important issues as they arise during the discussion.
    There is no cost to participants other than their time. The total 
estimated annualized burden hours are 144.
