Virtual Resources

Health on the Web

According to some estimates, there would be more than 10,000 web sites related to health. Furthermore, almost a quarter of all navigation on the web would be related to research done on health issues. But this new «medicine» is not without risks. Even if the Internet has an empowering effect on users, we have to develop a critical thinking towards information found on the Web.

Nevertheless, we all agree that the Internet contains quality information on health and support groups. They offer the advantage of confidentiality, around the clock access, and exist in many languages.

Please note that the objective of our section on virtual resources is to facilitate your research of information but not to replace a professional diagnosis. We decline all responsibility.

We have added resources like the virtual human body and the encyclopaedia of medical terms for more precision. We recommend you to also consult specialized sites offering information by themes when you cannot find what you are looking for in the categories suggested.

Happy browsing!
