Find reliable information on food supplements – Health Information Week 3 – 9 July 2017

Health Information Week (HIW) runs from 3 – 9 July 2017 and is a national initiative which aims to promote high quality health information to the public.


The objectives of the campaign are also to encourage partnership working across sectors and to help improve health literacy. During the week, NHS teams and other organisations will be running events and raising awareness of resources to help support health professionals and the public. The week is being promoted using the hashtag #HIW2017 on Twitter.


With such an array of information in the public sphere on vitamins and minerals, it is important that people are directed to reliable information to sort the fact from fiction on food supplements.


The Health and Food Supplements Information Service (HSIS) supports the aims of Health Information Week. As a communication service providing the media and health professionals with accurate and balanced information on food supplementation, HSIS aims to ensure that quality information is shared on nutrition, diet and the role of supplements.
