Abstract

This paper presents a new proposal to provide electronic health care for riverine communities through Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs), using boats as data mules. The focus of this project is based in specific scenarios without telecommunications infrastructure, like Marajó Archipelago, located in north of Brazil, at Amazon Forest.
