This article notes that information and communication technologies have not been harnessed systematically to improve the health of populations in developing countries and that the current digital divide is more dramatic than any other inequity in health or income. It also states that the quality of health information available on the web is inconsistent, and the visibility of research from developing countries is limited and concludes that the way forward is to exploit the full interactivity of the internet, which allows rapid feedback and change to continuously mould information into useful knowledge
