LRN laboratories participate in multiple Challenge Panels, Exercises and/or Validation Studies every year. These activities consist of 5–21,000 simulated samples provided by CDC. These challenges are necessary to verify the testing capability of the LRN laboratories. Because biological or chemical agents perceived to be of bioterrorism concern can occur rarely, some LRN laboratories have difficulty maintaining proficiency in certain testing methods as a result of day-to-day testing. Thus, simulated samples are distributed to ensure proficiency across LRN member laboratories. LRN laboratories also enter the results of these simulated samples into the LRN Results Messenger or through Data Integration for evaluation by CDC. During a surge event resulting from a bioterrorism or chemical terrorism attack, or during an emerging infectious disease outbreak, LRN Laboratories must submit all testing results using LRN Results Messenger or through Data Integration. CDC uses these results to track the progression of a bioterrorism event, respond in the most efficient and effective way possible, and share this data with other federal partners provide a more secured login and user authentication, (2) A new CDC template was implemented to support 508 compliance and responsive designs, (3) LRN user role structures were upgraded to provide more efficient administrative and user maintenance workflow, and (4) The website database and code was restructured to prepare the system for future modernization efforts. CDC also conducted LRN–B Challenge Panels (CP) and LRN–C Proficiency Testing (PT). The purpose of CP and PT is to simulate real samples for labs that would not have regularly performed some of the LRN procedures. Having the ability to conduct LRN CPs and PTs has led to improved laboratory performance and better preparedness. In FY18 the LRN–B CP passing rate was 97%. In FY19 and FY20, the passing rate was 88% and 90%. In FY18 the LRN–C PT passing was 96%. In FY19 and FY20, the passing rate was 95% and 96%, respectively. This data collection is authorized under the Public Health Service Act, (42 U.S.C. 241) Section 301. CDC requests OMB approval for an estimated 422,716 annual burden hours. There is no cost to respondents other than their time to participate. involved in the response. Data is collected via two primary avenues, the program LRN Results Messenger or through Electronic Laboratory Reporting (ELR), and results include details about the type and source of samples as well as the tests performed and the numerical and empirical results of those tests. An LRN laboratory must provide its testing capabilities, physical and shipping addresses, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Select Agent Permits, and specified responsible individuals’ names, phone numbers and email addresses. After registering with the LRN website, a user must provide his/her first and last name, work phone number, alternate phone number, email address, and month and day of birth. During reporting of results, sample details, tests performed, results obtained, and conclusions of tests are required. The LRN website has remained virtually the same and has only undergone routine maintenance since 2015 to keep it in working order. There have been many improvements to the LRN website over the course of the past three years: (1) The LRN website migrated to CDC Secure Access Management Services (SAMS) servers to ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Average number of responses per respondent Average burden per response (hours) Total burden hours Forms Public Health Laboratories ................

Proposed Project Red Carpet Entry Program Implementation Project—New— National Center for HIV, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description This information collection involves original, implementation research on the Red Carpet Entry (RCE) program to link persons with HIV to care within 72 hours of their diagnosis or their return to care after being out of care. Originally developed and implemented in Washington, DC by Whitman Walker Health and the D.C. Department of Health’s HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis, STD, and TB Administration, RCE has been shown to successfully and rapidly link people who tested HIV positive to an HIV care provider. Evaluations of RCE found that 70% of newly diagnosed people were linked to care within 72 hours of their HIV test. It was also shown to work for linking people who had fallen out of care with an HIV provider. An adapted version of RCE has also been shown to improve health outcomes among adolescents and youths in Kenya by quickly linking to care. The school-based program increased rates of linkage to care from 56.5% to 97.3% and three-month retention in care from 66.0% to 90.0%. Based on this, the CDC identified RCE as an evidence-informed structural intervention and included it in CDC’s Compendium of Evidence-based Interventions (EBIs) and Best Practices for HIV Prevention. Having an evidence-informed intervention like RCE that can be disseminated to the broader HIV health care community is important for several reasons: (1) Antiretroviral therapy (ART) is the best way to manage HIV and reduce transmission; (2) ART initiation is only possible when someone enters health care and then is ultimately retained in care; and (3) There are few existing evidenced-based structural interventions to support this process. This bias in the field of HIV interventions stems from a focus on individual behavior change interventions to prevent HIV infection. However, as new and effective treatments have emerged that reduce the likelihood of HIV transmission, HIV clinics and other healthcare settings have emerged as key contexts for HIV prevention by making sure that persons with HIV (PWH) have immediate access to ART. Therefore, the field has slowly shifted to understanding how providers and health systems can be encouraged to support PWH to reduce HIV. This study will contribute to the field by creating tools to support clinics and healthcare settings that want to implement the RCE Program to link PWH to care. A toolkit will be created and tested via implementing RCE in two clinics, and lessons from the implementation of RCE will be used to update the toolkit. The final toolkit will be disseminated via CDC’s website. Furthermore, because the study also evaluates the implementation strategies, outcomes, and context when RCE is being used, the study will be able to recommend what is needed to implement RCE with fidelity and success and incorporate these insights into the toolkit. Finally, because tracking costs are also a part of the evaluation, clinics and health systems that are examining potential RCE adoption will have material information about what is needed to put RCE into practice. An understanding of the actual costs can provide important justification for program planners. The results of this study will help CDC frame how best to disseminate the RCE Program to the broader HIV health care community. This is important because only federal agencies like CDC have the resources and infrastructure to broadly disseminate EBIs. Broad dissemination and uptake of EBIs like RCE can help move population rates of HIV suppression which would affect population transmission rates. Linkage to care, in an era of biomedical HIV prevention, is a prevention linchpin. CDC requests OMB approval for an estimated 125 burden hours. There are no costs to respondents other than their time to participate.

Background and Brief Description

    This information collection involves original, implementation 
research on the Red Carpet Entry (RCE) program to link persons with HIV 
to care within 72 hours of their diagnosis or their return to care 
after being out of care. Originally developed and implemented in 
Washington, DC by Whitman Walker Health and the D.C. Department of
