The U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Office of Pharmacy Affairs (OPA), the unit within the Health and Human Services Department (HHS) that runs the 340B drug discount program, refreshed the OPA site late last week. This is the first refresh since 2018.
“The changes you see reflect the work we are doing to update the look and feel of the entire agency website,” a HRSA spokesperson said on July 15. “No content was changed, just the look, feel and layout of the page.”
The oldest known copy of the OPA website, accessible via the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine, is a snapshot of the site taken Sept. 7, 2005.
The site design that HRSA just replaced dates to the late summer of 2018. The OPA homepage’s navigation sidebar was switched from the right side of the page to the left.
Featured information on the page used to appear in a light blue box. The color has been changed to ivory (the box was a brighter yellow in older versions of the OPA site). Main titles throughout the website are larger and bolder, making them easier to read.
The 340B program is marking its 30th anniversary this year.
