HON’s New Address

The Health On the Net Foundation has moved to a new office. We’re still in Geneva, Switzerland, but now you can find us a little further from the center of Geneva, in the middle of the beautiful parks of Chêne-Bourg. Our telephone numbers and email addresses stay the same, but our fax number has changed.

Our new address is:
Health On the Net Foundation (HON)
c/o HUG-Belle-Idée
Chemin du Petit-Bel-Air 2
CH-1225 Chêne-Bourg
Switzerland

And our new fax number is: +41 22 30 55 728.


HON Studies and Surveys

Notification of a Comparative Study

Important:

Notification of a comparative study regarding the increased involvement of the general public in trustworthy online medical and health information

Currently, the HONcode certified websites are audited manually once every year by the HONcode Team. We have observed that many websites are consistently, year after year, in compliance with the HONcode principles; in this context, we would like to use the opportunity to conduct a comparative study and proceed to a testing phase. This testing phase will aim to evaluate the capacity of a biennial revision. The revision will take place once every two years, with a more active involvement of the general public and more frequent random reviews (automatic and manual checks).

From the 20th of November 2011 onwards the validity of your HONcode Certificate has changed or is about to change from one into two years. And don’t be surprised to hear from us more often.

Important:

Notification d’une étude comparative relative à l’intérêt croissant du public pour une information médicale en ligne de confiance

Actuellement, les sites certifiés sont audités et examinés tous les ans par notre équipe lors de la révision annuelle. Nous constatons alors que beaucoup de sites sont toujours en conformité avec les principes du HONcode année après année ; dans ce contexte-là, nous aimerions procéder à une phase de test consistant à évaluer les portées d’une révision tous les deux ans, l’audit qui aura lieu dans les 2 ans sera renforcé par la coopération collective, les contrôles aléatoires plus fréquents (automatiques et manuels). Ne soyez pas étonné de recevoir des nouvelles entre des audits.

Par conséquent, veuillez noter qu’à partir du 20 novembre 2011, la validité de votre certificat HONcode a été (ou sera) étendue à deux ans.

Future Survey Conducted by HON

Before the end of the year, HON will be conducting a survey to get feedback on its activities. We would like to ask webmasters of HONcode certified websites and websites in the certification process to sign up in order to participate in this survey, your opinions will be greatly appreciated.

Please let us know whether you are interested in participating by replying to this newsletter (HONinfo@healthonnet.org) and entering "Feedback" to the subject field. Please be sure to do this before Sunday, the 11th of December, 2011.
