At a meeting of the Group of Seven (G7) Ministers in Naples, July 1994, it was agreed that action be taken to promote the development of a Global Information Society. In February 1995, 11 Themes were agreed, one of which (Theme 8) was Healthcare. Within the Healthcare Theme 8, a number of sub-projects were launched. In 1997, in a document "The Barriers", the Sub-project identified what it saw as the barriers to the creation of a Global Information Society for Health, and their impact.
