Helping HON

The Health On the Net Foundation offers one of the world's best healthcare information portals on the Web. Our mission is to help people get better by guiding them and their care providers to reliable medical information. Access to trustworthy health websites and other services are free of charge to all users. To support its mission HON has developed the HONcode certification for health websites. The HONcode certification request (only if your service is certifiable according to the HONcode) is subject to a fee, and annual HONcode recertifications are also subject to a fee. Fees depend on the type and popularity of the website.

HON is a not-for-profit organization and to pursue our work, we rely on both public and private sector donations, research grants, re-certification contribution fees, small cash contributions* and specific services in kind (e.g. translation of HON sections into foreign languages, links and networking). Help us in our mission - Make a donation

Please note: There is no conflict of interest with regards to the re-assessment process being a paid service. Payment for conducting the re-assessment process in no way guarantees the renewal of your HONcode certification. If the expert review team finds that your website is not fully HONcode compliant, you will be requested to make the necessary changes to make it compliant. Only after the website reaches full compliance with the HONcode will your HONcode certification be renewed.

Note: Donations are subject to the following rules:

Any financial commitment from public or private sector entities to the HON Web site or to a dedicated project under the responsibility of HON, gives him/her no right to influence the content of this Web site. HON is completely independent on all the published material content in the HON's Web site. There is no influence at all from donating parties or partners funding any part of a project or section of the HON Web site. If any such pressure should at any time occur, the partnership agreement with the partner in question will be immediately nullified to safeguard the credibility of this site.
