Keynote – Etienne Caniard

Etienne Caniard, President, Commission of Medical Information Quality and Dissemination,
French National Authority for Health (HAS) | France

Etienne is in charge of the French government’s policy on health information quality. It is under his watch
that the hAS developed a relation with the HON Foundation to certifiy French health web sites. Before he was appointed to the National
Authority for health, he was in charge of health at the Mutualité Française, a “complementary insurance”
covering over 38 million French citizens. Here we’re asking Etienne to reflect on what he’s heard and
talk to us about how Health 2.0 might fit into France’s national health policy.
