Health24 is South Africa's leading health and lifestyle website. It
was established by its MD, Dr Danie Pauw. In November 2000, a majority
stake was sold to Media24, a leading publishing company in the Naspers Group, Africa's leading media & publishing company.
Health24 falls into the online publishing division of Media24, 24.com, and is a member of the Digital Media and Marketing Association (DMMA)..
Health24 content is educational, relevant, and medically reviewed.
It is accessible and trustworthy, and is designed to enable readers to
make informed decisions about their health.
The site covers a wide range of topics, such as in-depth information on
common medical conditions, diet, fitness, pregnancy, parenting, mind
health – even pet health. It is continually being updated by a team of
medical specialists and journalists.
Bustling Ask-an-Expert forums featuring over 40 experts and some
brilliant interactive tools provide a dynamic user experience.
Health24 is HON code-accredited, a grading awarded only to quality online health services internationally.
THE HEALTH24 COMMUNITY
Health24 is intended for a general audience. Each month, around a million individual people visit Health24.
In addition to its own audience, Health24 is the health partner to the
following major SA portals: 24.com, News24, MWEB and Webmail. The result
is that the majority of online South Africans use Health24 as their
destination for health information.
Nearly three-quarters of Health24's community is in the 25-49 year age
group, and 70% are women. Just over half are parents, and they fall into
the LSM 7-10 group.
A user survey in 2006 indicated that 77% of Health24 readers consult the internet before visiting a health professional.
