E-commerce Survey
Pamphlet on Health Information on the Internet
Annual Recertification


E-commerce Survey

Because the Internet is constantly evolving, the HON Foundation makes every effort to respond to the needs of all players in the health field as well as website users. Thus, with the emergence of and increase in telemedicine sites and the popularity they generate with Internet users, we wish to understand whether it is useful for the Foundation to watch over health-related sites (whether goods or services), providing them with specific recommendations.

To do so, we are launching a survey aimed at website users and webmasters. We would be happy to receive your opinions on the subject. https://fr.surveymonkey.com/r/Survey_HON


Pamphlet on Health Information on the Internet

With the support of the French association for unrestricted healthcare (Union Française pour une Médecine Libre - UFML) and the association of doctors of the canton of Geneva (Association des Médecins du canton de Genève - AMG), HON has published a simple educational pamphlet to encourage vigilance and provide benchmarks in judging the reliability of medical information on the Internet.

Indeed, millions of people around the world search for health information online. Thousands of websites are meeting this demand. However, as you probably know, all sites are not equally reliable and do not necessarily provide quality information.

The pamphlet will be distributed widely, notably to doctor's offices where it will be made available in waiting rooms. It is also available on the Internet in a print-ready format.

We encourage you to share it extensively in order to increase awareness.


Annual Recertification

In 2014, our government sponsors encouraged us to become financially independent.

So, in order to continue the certification process, annual recertification is now a paid service. The amount of the contribution depends on whether your site is commercial or not and its visibility.

We are aware that this financial model is complex for many organizations and as such are doing our best to find alternatives. Your suggestions are welcome.
