About

Harvard Health Publications (HHP), a division of Harvard Medical School, has been creating trusted health information for consumers since 1975, with the publication of the first issue of the Harvard Health Letter, the first of its type in consumer health literature. It draws on the expertise of the 12,000 faculty physicians and researchers at Harvard Medical School and its world-famous affiliated hospitals to deliver current, practical, authoritative health information. We license this content to a variety of clients, including consumer health and wellness portals, healthcare companies, payers and providers, publishers and news media organizations, app developers, and others. While our customer base is diverse, each client has the same objective: to provide its consumer audience with the most comprehensive, authoritative, and trusted health information available.

Harvard Health Publications publishes four monthly newsletters and more than 50 in-depth Special Health Reports that cover disease and wellness topics for consumers. We also license a robust suite of Web-based content products, including Health Decision Guides, Interactive Tools, Health A-Z, Ask the Expert, Ask Harvard Medical School Videos, and more. Our content offerings can be repurposed in a variety of formats best suited to a client's message, forming the backbone of an authoritative education or disease awareness program in print or digital forms.
