The Wiki Project Med Foundation (WPMEDF), also known within the Wikimedia movement as Wikimedia Medicine, is the Wikimedia thematic organization dedicated to promoting development and distribution of health care content within our movement.
More broadly, we are an independent corporation founded in December 2012 committed "to make clear, reliable, comprehensive, up-to-date educational resources and information in the biomedical and related social sciences freely available to all people in the language of their choice online and off."
We do this by forming collaborations with other like-minded organizations, giving talks at universities and other organizations, and working to develop greater access to the medical literature for Wikipedians, among many others.
We are incorporated in New York State and tax-exempt in the United States, but are a global group with members from all continents with permanent residents.
We are recognized by the Wikimedia Foundation as a Thematic organisation, and so granted the right to use the "Wikimedia Medicine" name, since Summer 2019.
