The new Web site of the World Organization of Family Doctors (WONCA), www. globalfamilydoctor. com, includes all of the information from their old Web site and offers news and information, forums of communication, and educational programs related to global family medicine. The Daily News Centre provides synopses of relevant medical articles, news briefs, diagnostic challenges, reviews of books related to family medicine, profiles of WONCA personalities, humorous anecdotes, and opportunities for discussion among members. The Internet Resources section includes links to over 100 online journals, over 20 literature search facilities, over 30 sites with patient information and education, over 30 family medicine mailing lists, links to a small collection of medical books, and links to over 100 medical sites. The site also includes a section on current research projects, several WONCA publications, and an online shopping center for books and multimedia educational material. WONCA is developing another section to the Web site that will be for patients and the general public.
