Our Story

It's a complicated time with so much information and along with it, disinformation, and we just want to just cut through the noise - Shepherd Smith

The world of health and medicine is vast and constantly evolving. Every health issue has a story to tell and a world of its own. To meet this challenge HWN is changing the way health and medical content is delivered on the internet.

With the intent of achieving our vision 'Informed People, Healthier World', our innovative easy-to-use platform uses the power of storytelling and imagery to provide clarity on issues that matter to you and our planet's health.

Our targeted content, including showcasing what people are talking about, entertains and empowers a broad-based audience including people with medical challenges, those who simply want to stay healthy and anyone involved in the business of health.

First the internet, now Healthworldnet (HWN) connecting you to the world of health and medicine, the alternative to the usual disease, condition and wellness sites.

And say goodbye to time consuming searches...

Recognizing that topics can have divergent views, Diagnos strives to give our users the best curated and original content on the internet. But we don't stop there. Our platform also includes:

Defib247 is our global campaign that focuses on increasing public awareness about Public Access Defibrillation (PAD) along with expanding PAD accessibility 24-7. Our goal is to double the survival rate of out of hospital sudden cardiac arrest by 2030.

Health Entertainment Network features evocative visual media as well as Novateurs highlighting 'ordinary yet extraordinary' people and companies dedicated to creating a healthier you and planet.
