About[edit]

MEDAppScreen.png

Medical Wikipedia is a en:mobile app which provides en:offline access to en:health information on Wikipedia. It is an instance of the Wikipedia arm of Kiwix.

On June 10th, 2015 Wiki Project Med Foundation and Wikimedia Switzerland launched an android app that contains all of the English Wikipedia's health care content: including medical, anatomy, medication, physiology, dentistry, and sanitation related articles as tagged by the respective WikiProjects. Since then, further language versions have followed. All versions of the app are available for download on en:Google Play. A two step process is required for other operating systems.

This page is for collaboration to improve the existing versions and to launch new versions. The introduction page for the English app is at Textbook of Medicine
