Finding Creditable Health Information on the Internet

These are US government websites that offer creditable, non-commercial health information:

Other useful sites include:

Look For The HON Code on Medical Web Sites

Hon LogoIt can be difficult to decide which websites offer creditable health information.  The Health On the Net  Foundation has developed the HON Code.  Sites that display the HON Code symbol  have subscribed to a code of ethics and passed an inspection that requires the site to s cite the sources of their information s indicate the qualifications of the authors of the material s back up any claims made relating to benefits of a practice or medication s make sure their site is accessible s make sure that the authors can be contacted s identify the site's funding sources  and s  distinguish advertising from editorial content. (From the HON Foundation http://www.hon.ch/.)

Look for the HON symbol when you are evaluating a web site. If it appears, you know that the site has been evaluated for the qualities listed above.
