Medwiki, the medical wiki

What happens when a fan of Free Software and wikies wish to motivate your girlfriend to her Medicine studies? You could think in many things but possibly not to create a multilanguage wiki about Medicine and human health to her, but was exactly that what I did, and I couldn’t choose a best gift.

This way has borned in 2006 Medwiki, the medical wiki, today available in two languages, Brazilian Portuguese and English, where free (as is air) knowledge about Medicine and human health are being built and growing.

Medwiki was created and is hosted on, which provides many interesting and useful resources to the project like forums, mailing lists, tasks tracking, support requests, news and more.

Actually, you won’t find many articles on the English version, which have been created recently and, at this time, it’s slightly receiving content, help pages etc. If you want ot help Medwiki to grow, contact one of the project administrators on the project page
