Each issue of Focus-Gesundheit provides clear, well-founded information and advice on one specific field of indication. The magazine helps health-conscious people to understand the fascinating world of medicine a little bit more and continues the tradition of high health literacy established by the Focus news magazine.

Each issue focuses on a particular topic. From the back to the heart to the soul, science journalists report on preventive measures and patient outcomes, experts explain new treatment methods, and researchers talk about the high-tech therapies of tomorrow. The magazine is published 10 times a year with a print run of at least 85,000 copies.

Each issue also includes issue-specific lists of the top physicians and clinics. These and all other medical practitioners can be found using the Focus-Gesundheit Arztsuche (“Doctor Search”) platform, which is available online and on mobile devices.

In addition to the print title, there are e-paper editions and a dedicated “Focus-Arztsuche” online channel.
