The HONcode Certification is now recognized as the most important guarantee of quality and reliability for information on Health on the Net.
It is attributed worldwide by the Health On the Net Foundation, a non-profit, non-governmental organization, accredited to the United Nations Economic and Social Council.
The Health On the Net Foundation is responsible for promoting reliable health information on the internet, as well as its appropriate use.
It develops ethical standards to protect users and releases the HONcode, the code of ethics for the drafting and updating of websites dedicated to health. HONcode is a project of the University of Geneva which, after careful investigation, "certifies" the medical information sites that meet certain requirements.
The Health On the Net Foundation has developed the 8 fundamental principles that a medical website must comply with in order to be considered ethically correct, guidelines which are intended to guarantee the user of these sites a certain level of reliability and impartiality of the published information; they also aim to ensure that the online availability of such information does not harm the normal functioning of public health (for example that this information is not used by non-medical users for the purpose of self-diagnosis or self-care). Based on these guidelines, the Health On the Net organization evaluates and certifies the sites that decide to join it. In accordance with the HONcode guidelines, as proof of the authoritativeness of the contents on this website and of an ethically correct editorial policy, the website www.vanniveronesi.com is proud of this important international recognition.
