Medical MEDWiki and Wikipedia is a mobile app which provides offline access to health information on MDWiki and Wikipedia. It is an instance 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 Google Play.

In 2018 an English-language WikiMed app was launched in the Microsoft Store: this app can be installed on all Windows 10/11 devices (PCs, tablets, phones, Xbox). In 2020 Electron versions of this app (with built-in WikiMed archive) were provided on the Kiwix JS PWA GitHub Releases page, and these run on Windows 7, 8, 10 or 11 (32bit / 64bit).

For other operating systems, a two step process is required: download the app, then download the archive. Apps can be obtained from Kiwix.

This page is for collaboration to improve the existing versions and to launch new versions. The introduction page for the English app is at App/IntroPage
