An information revolution is underway which will have an impact on all sectors of society.
It will fundamentally change national and international health systems.
The global Internet is a key influence and will change the balance of power within and between healthcare professions, and between them and the general public.
This revolution offers enormous potential benefits to global health but there is also potential for harm.
There are a wide range of barriers to realising the potential benefits.
They lie in areas such as the protection of personal information ; ownership and legal accountability ; data meanings ; structures and database navigation ; deficiencies in the global Internet and lack of I access by many communities.
This paper considers the nature of those barriers.
In 1994, the Group of Seven Nations launched an initiative to stimulate a global information society.
Theme 8 deals with healthcare and therein Sub-project 5'Enabling Mechanisms'which the author leads, is seeking to identify barriers and the authoritative international sources of advise and good practice.
It is conducting an international survey, the results of which should be published by the end of 1997.
This paper describes the aims of this Sub-project.
