HealthInfoNet Cafe

Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet Deputy Director Richard Midford ran an internet cafe during both days of the conference. There was a steady demand for demonstrations of the website, and copies of the health topic reviews were popular, particularly among delegates from remote locations where internet access was poor.
