The Google Ads policy on health care and medicines will change around early July 2011. The policy is changing to prohibit the promotion of certain home HIV tests and Human Growth Hormone (HGH) products globally. In addition, the policy is changing to allow the promotion of DHEA and Melatonin in Canada. We made these decisions for legal reasons. We'll be sending notifications to affected advertisers. After the new policy goes into effect, the policy description will be updated to reflect this change.
