This principle is not applicable to this site 

YMH was initially funded by a grant from the Mannion Fund, through the Social Work Department and the Center For Families at Boston Children’s Hospital. The website continues to be guided and supported by the work of the Young Men’s Health Initiative, which is made up of staff members from our Adolescent & Young Adult Medicine Practice. We are also grateful to the staff of the Center for Young Women’s Health (the creators of youngwomenshealth.org), who paved the way in content development, site structure, and design.

The website does not accept any form of paid advertising and our sponsors do not influence the content of the health guides, except to require that the information is educational and informed by quality research.

Similarly, the HON Foundation and/or its partner(s) shall not be held liable for the content of such certified websites or any other website accessible via a hypertext link or through third-party information.
