Description HON is a not-for-profit organization, born in 1996, during the beginning of the World Wide Web, from a collective decision by health specialists, led by the late Jean-Raoul Scherrer, who anticipated the need for online trustworthy health information.

HON has led international efforts to guide the growing community of healthcare consumers and providers on the World Wide Web to sound, reliable medical information and expertise, notably through the HON Code of Conduct (HONcode©).
