Ad & sponsorship policy
Medical News Today receives funding from advertisements, sponsored content, and other partnerships, such as affiliate programs. The reality is that receiving funding from our advertisers allows us to cover more conditions and provide more powerful experiences, including video, animations, and input from a range of experts. Be assured that we’re absolutely inflexible about our editorial autonomy. Other than receiving input about broad topic areas, we never allow sponsors to influence the content we create.
We follow specific ad and sponsorship guidelines to ensure that advertising never gets in the way of our editorial integrity. MNT chooses the ads, does not endorse any products, distinguishes all ads from editorial content, and clearly distinguishes between sponsored and non-sponsored content.
