Your Health is striving to comply with all of the Priority 1 and 2 accessibility checkpoints across its web presence, as established in the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) web accessibility initiative (WAI). The WAI promotes a high degree of usability and accessibility for people with disabilities. The W3C promotes good practice amongst the web community via initiatives like WAI (www.w3.org/WAI/) Web Contact Accessibility Guidelines 1.0.
Our aim is to have all of the Your Health website compliant, however it is possible that some of our older pages might not currently conform to these standards. We are actively engaging in a program to ensure that all future web pages are compliant with W3C guidelines for accessibility.
