EU Commission's Quality Criteria for Health Websites

The EU Commission issued a press release indicating the importance of setting standards for health related data on the web, as “Europeans access more than 100,000 health websites, making such websites amongst the most frequently used.” The Commission recommended the adoption of 6 criteria for such sites: “transparency and honesty, authority, privacy and data protection, updating of information, accountability and accessibility.”
