The Health on the Net Foundation Code of Conduct (HONcode) for medical
and health Web sites addresses one of Internet's main healthcare issues: the
reliability and credibility of information.
The Internet has become one of the most widely-used communication media.
With the availability of Web server software, anyone can set up a Web site and
publish any kind of data which is then accessible to all.
The problem is therefore no longer finding information but assessing the
credibility of the publisher as well as the relevance and accuracy of a document
retrieved from the Net.
In many cases, a given Web site provides no appropriate documentation
regarding the scientific design of a medical study, nor are studies made
available that support given claims.
The Health On the Net Foundation has elaborated the Code of Conduct to help
standardise the reliability of medical and health information available on the
The HONcode is not an award system, nor does it intend to rate the quality of
the information provided by a Web site. It only defines a set of rules:

English speakers can take heart from planned clinic to open in the North
By Cnaan Liphshiz
Northern Israel may soon see the opening of the first medical clinic in the region where
immigrants from English-speaking countries will be able to receive services in their mother
tongue, along with diplomats, tourists and other non-Hebrew speakers. The new public clinic
is planned as part of Haifa's Carmel Medical Center.
The English-language clinic is the initiative of a senior cardiologist from the U.K., Dr. Romeo
Vecht, who recently immigrated to Israel. Vecht, born in 1935, recently joined the Carmel
Medical Center in Haifa, where he is working with South Africa-born professor Basil Lewis,
who heads the hospital's cardiology department.
"Management [at Carmel] said they thought an English-speaking clinic would be a good idea,
and that they would be interested in promoting the project and setting up the clinic," Vecht told
Anglo File last week. The clinic, he added, will probably operate within the hospital. Treatment
will be part of the hospital's services to the general public and recognized by Kupot Holim.
Vecht, who will head the clinic, speaks German, French and Dutch in addition to English, so
patients can expect to receive serviced in those languages as well. But the doctor's Hebrew is
still shaky. "I believe the clinic can help a lot of people in the north who don't speak Ivrit," he
Another initiative which Vecht is working on is organizing what he calls "an Anglo cardiology
seminar," which will focus on bringing experts from the U.K. "Cardiology in Israel draws
mostly from the U.S. in terms of methods, procedures and research trends," he explained. "I
am interested in bringing more experts from the U.K. They have a lot to offer, and Israel also
has a lot to offer in return."
The seminar, in his eyes, bears political significance as well as professional. "I decided to
promote the seminar after hearing British Prime Minister Gordon Brown speak at the Knesset
earlier this year, in which he favored a scientific rapprochement," Vecht said, noting it was
"probably the best way of countering efforts in the U.K. to promote an academic boycott
In the U.K., Vecht worked at some of the best medical facilities available in Europe, treating
dignitaries such as the late King Hussein of Jordan, former U.S. ambassador to Israel Dan
Kurtzer and royalty from several states in the Gulf.
He and his wife, Naomi Vecht, moved to Caesarea a few months ago. They have three children
back in the U.K. Romeo says that Carmel is on a par with the best facilities in the U.K. "The
only thing that's missing is an MRI machine, which helps in diagnoses," he says. Asked
whether he intends to use his connections to get funding for the machine from the U.K. -
where his eldest son, Joshua, currently works as a senior heart surgeon - Vecht said, "Of
course one must try to do what one can." Vecht said he was "completing a circle after 100
years" by immigrating.
"My grandfather, Aharon Vecht, knew Benjamin Theodor Herzl," he revealed, "and was one
of the people who founded the Jewish National Fund along with Herzl. Now I am making
Aliyah exactly 100 years after my grandfather passed away."
Northern Israel may soon see the opening of the first medical clinic in the
region where immigrants from English-speaking countries will be able to
receive services in their mother tongue, along with diplomats, tourists and
other non-Hebrew speakers. The new public clinic is planned as part of
Haifa's Carmel Medical Center.

In case of an emergency, you will of course be given blood transfusions as
needed, but for elective surgery, you need to secure donors
An organisation called trumat dam can help you if you have difficulties.
If you voluntarily give blood once a year, you and your family do not have to
find a donor.
