This study examines the challenges, issues and complexities surrounding the construction of information for a South Texas Internet-based, health information gateway. It explores the collaborative and negotiated power dimensions and partnerships that supported this effort and the implications of online technological innovation for women's health choices. The context of the study is the online South Texas Health Information Gateway, a health information and communications-based effort that emerged in response to a stated community need to improve access to local, relevant and time-sensitive health information, resources and support for women and their families.
