Trustworthy information more visible on Google.com
HON works with Google.com to help annotate HONcode accredited websites for health-related searches with labels. These labels appear at the top of Google search results for relevant search queries. “Our strong expertise in this area gave us the opportunity to help make health information easier for people to find.” adds Celia Boyer.


10 years Devoted to Improving Online Health Information Quality
The HON Foundation founded 10 years ago, when the World Wide Web was just beginning to show its potential and challenges, and eventually became a leading actor in promoting the quality of health information for care professionals and for citizens.

This achievement rewards the efforts made by HON-accredited Web sites to maintain the HONcode standard at the national, European and international levels. Currently, Web sites in some 72 countries worldwide bear the HONcode seal.

During the World Health Assembly, and in collaboration with WHO, the conference Strengthening Health Systems through eHealth, held the 23rd of May in Geneva, consecrates the relationship between WHO and HON, as well as the constantly growing cooperation between Switzerland, Europe and Africa in the health domain thanks to the efficient use of new communication tools, in particular the World Wide Web.

This remarkable event demonstrated new synergies for the development of eHealth by bringing together various expertises. More about this event: http://www.hon.ch/OMS/program.html.

On this occasion, we have special thoughts to the memory of Professor Jean-Raoul Scherrer, great visionary of medical informatics, co-founder, defender and servant of the HON Foundation.
