One of NPIN’s goals is to provide our prevention partners with resources to help
make your work easier. One way we do this is through our NPIN feeds. A feed
allows you to see the latest headlines as they are posted to a website. The
information comes to you rather than you having to go to the website. In
essence, the feeds themselves are just Web pages designed to be read by
computers rather than people.
NPIN provides two feeds to prevention partners:
NPIN Funding Feed – Stay current with private and federal funding opportunities for community-based HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB service organizations.
NPIN News Feed – Receive updates on HIV/AIDS-, Viral Hepatitis-, STD-, and
TB-related events in the news; trends in these epidemics; and research findings
from major newspapers, wire services, medical journals, and news magazines.
Receiving Our Feeds
In general, the first thing you need is something called a news reader.
This is an application that checks the feeds and lets you read any new articles
that have been added. There are many different versions, some of which are
accessed using a browser and some of which are downloadable applications also
known as aggregators.
Browser-based news readers let you catch up with your feed subscriptions from any
computer through a Web-based service. For example, you can receive the feeds to
your Hotmail, Google, MSN, and Yahoo home pages. A downloadable application lets
you store the feeds on your main computer in the same way that you download your
e-mail using Outlook.
you have chosen a news reader, you can subscribe to the feed in various ways,
including dragging the URL of the feeds shown below into your news reader or
cutting and pasting the same URL into your news reader.

Sending Our Feeds (Web Developers)
If you run your own Web site, you can display the latest headlines from NPIN
Funding and News on your own site using feeds. There are numerous
resources on the Internet that detail how to integrate a feed. They can be found
by performing searches using various key terminologies (e.g., "add feeds to Web
site scripting"). Many of these Web sites offer freely available code samples
instructing Web developers in how to integrate a feed into a Web site.
We encourage the use of NPIN feeds as part of a Web site; however, we require
that the proper format and attribution be used when NPIN content appears. The
attribution text should read:
“NPIN Funding” or
“NPIN News” or "http://www.cdcnpin.org/scripts/news/NewsList.asp"
You may not use any NPIN logo or other NPIN trademark.
We reserve the right to prevent the distribution of NPIN Funding or News content,
and NPIN does not accept any liability for its feeds. Use of trade names and
commercial sources is for identification only and does not imply endorsement by
the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. References to non-CDC sites on
the Internet are provided as a service to NPIN readers and do not constitute or
imply endorsement of these organizations or their programs by CDC or the U.S.
Department of Health and Human Services. CDC is not responsible for the content
of pages found at these sites. URL addresses listed in the NPIN Web site were
