This study reviews the e-health ethics and the principles of medical ethics. Results showed that the e-health ethics principles and the quality criteria of e-health website such as authenticity, confidentiality, data updates, accountability, accessibility, and efficiency are based on principles and values of medical ethics. But the challenges for the Web features such as increased access and development of communication can be seen on issues such as privacy, security and justice in the distribution of services.
