Abstract: Uptake of telehealth in the Northern Territory has been limited, for a variety of reasons including inadequate access to broadband internet.1 Through collaboration between multiple organisations — Northern Institute, Aboriginal Medical Services Alliance NT, Laynhapuy Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (LHS), eMerge (a local information and communications technology company), Telstra Health, and Broadband for the Bush Alliance — funding was obtained from the Regional Economic Infrastructure Fund (NT Government, $407 540) to provide access to reliable broadband for three very remote Aboriginal communities.
