This website describes the Amazon Telehealth Program, a project for distance education and telemedicine support to a rural medical internship in the Amazon. It is being developed by the EduMed Institute for Education in Medicine and Health, a Brazilian not-for-profit foundation, in collaboration with the Faculty of Health Sciences of the University of Amazonas. The programme facilitates remote communication between medical students completing an internship in rural and aboriginal communities in the Amazon jungle and their teachers in  Manaus' University Hospital and other supporting hospitals, in order to solve the problems they face, by means of voice and video transmissions over the Internet and satellite. It helps them to improve the public services for health prevention and care in those regions, thus increasing the quality of life of their populations
