RADG has been developing appropriate health technology for use in remote communities in Australia. The greatest need for these technologies has been in Aboriginal communities. In developing appropriate technical artifacts, RADG has confronted two problems. Firstly we require good contact with remote communities for consultation and feedback. Secondly, part of making artifacts appropriate for under-developed countries or regions, is the need to include employment and self-determination as part of the benefits of a technology.
