The VACCHO healthy lifestyles state forum was a three day event that took place at the Rydges Hotel, Carlton Victoria. The forum was aimed at health care professionals working in the Aboriginal health sector with a focus on: chronic conditions; smoking cessation and control; nutrition and physical activity; sexual health and blood borne viruses; and health promotion.

Christine Potter from the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet held an internet café on day one and two of the forum. Delegates were interested in learning about the type of information accessible on the HealthInfoNet website, particularly information pertaining to sexual health, hepatitis, chronic conditions, and women's health. The VACCHO healthy lifestyles state forum was attended by around 60 delegates. They also showed interest in learning more about the HealthInfoNet website and the wealth of information that was available for health professionals to access.
