The NIDA International Program was recently awarded the Silver World Wide Web Health Award, an honor bestowed on the Nation’s best electronic health programs and Web-based tools. The Web site was chosen among hundreds of local, state, and national U.S. health-related organizations that enter every year. Using a rating scale of up to 100 points, a panel of health technology professionals judged the entries based on content, format, success in reaching the targeted health audience, and overall quality.

NIDA received the award in the Government category for its redesigned site, launched in June 2011. The site now makes it easier for visitors to explore fellowship opportunities, connect with international drug abuse researchers, and read past issues of the NIDA International E-News. Plus a new keyword feature allows for faster access to information by topic area. Explore the many features of the NIDA International Program through its award-winning Web site.
