Science tells us that people are bad at predicting what keeps us happy. It also says that focusing on our passions and purpose can create sustainable happiness. Yet, here we are, a global society of people that are unhappy (or think they could be happier) in life.
Simply put, everyone wants to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. To have a higher purpose. That’s where we come in. We believe by prioritizing happiness in work and life, together we can create change in the world more than we ever thought possible.

Health On the Net Foundation
Health On the Net Foundation's origins go back to September 7-8, 1995, when some of the world's foremost experts on telemedicine gathered in Geneva, Switzerland, for a conference entitled The Use of the Internet and World-Wide Web for Telematics in Healthcare . The 60 participants came from 11 countries . They included U.S. heart surgeon Dr Michael DeBakey , physicians and professors, researchers and senior representatives of the World Health Organisation (WHO) , International Telecommunication Union (ITU) , the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN) , the European Commission , the National Library of Medicine  and the G7-Global Healthcare Applications Project . As the conference wound up, they unanimously voted to create a permanent body that would, in the words of the programme, "promote the effective and reliable use of the new technologies for telemedicine in healthcare around the world." HON's site went live some six months later. On March 20, 1996, www.hon.ch became one of the very first URLs to guide both lay users and medical professionals to reliable sources of healthcare information in cyberspace.
