ECDC is today launching a refreshed version of its homepage to further improve the accessibility of its information. Following discussions with our users, usability recommendations and web statistics analysis, the look and feel of the ECDC homepage has been changed to allow clarity of navigation and use of available resources.
A new feature in the top left section of the restructured page highlights public health events and ECDC products, such as a current outbreak or a release of a scientific publication. As the main item on the page, the component brings additional visual impact to the webpage and is in line with current user needs and expectations.
In addition, the number of sections displayed has been reduced in order to improve readability and a cleaner design was implemented to improve visitor’s experience.
