The 2nd Aboriginal maternal and child health conference was held at the Duxton Hotel, Perth on 29th and 30th May 2013. The conference theme was Working together to close the gap - building on success for the future. The conference was an opportunity for those who work in partnership with Aboriginal families to share stories about the successes and the challenges in closing the gap in Aboriginal maternal and child health.

Jane Burns and Stephanie Colbert from the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet conducted a promotional internet café on the first day of the conference. Delegates were interested in learning about the features of the HealthInfoNet web resource and how it could support them in their day-to-day work. Jane delivered a presentation to delegates titled The Australian Indigenous HealthInfonet: helping those who work in Aboriginal Maternal and Child Health. The presentation was well attended and well received by the crowd.
