About the FDA.gov Redesign

Why did FDA change its Website?

Simply, we listened to you. We evaluated our Web site with a sampling of our key audiences:

  • consumers
  • health professionals
  • industry representatives

Through collaboration with users in testing site-wide designs, we made improvements to make FDA.gov easier and more satisfying to use.

What is different about the new site?

We've created new features that will allow you to find information more quickly. Some examples: 

  • Information is categorized by topic for easier retrieval, with related subjects consolidated in sections on the site. 
  • Page design and navigation have been updated and are consistent throughout the site. 
  • Content has been reviewed for relevance, with redundant and outdated content removed.
This is just the beginning!

The redesign is part of an ongoing evolution that began in 2008. We will continue to evaluate our site regularly and incorporate feedback from our users.

We'd like to hear from you --
