Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)
Presentation about WikiProject Med and how this project is improving and its impact and importance on our communities, especially in African countries and other developing countries. Also, I'm planning to present how medical articles were improved in Arabic Wikipedia by local activities or online contests. Then, I'll present the importance of creating and expanding medical articles in the local African languages.
