HealthInfoNet Cafe

This conference was organised by the National Rural Health Alliance and held in Albury, 7-10 March 2007. It was intended for anyone who had a personal or professional interest in the health and well-being of people in rural and remote areas. Indigenous health and well-being was once again a major focus of the conference and was identified as a priority social issue.

Sandra Harben and Bronwyn Gee from the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet and Shannon Smith from the Aboriginal & Islander Health Worker Journal conducted a HealthInfoNet cafe at the conference. This showcased Aboriginal health information particularly related to rural and remote health.
