The United Nations University chooses MEDICAL

The United Nations University (UNU) has adopted MEDICAL

United Nations University - International Institute for Global Health (IIGH)  ( http://www.unu.edu ) has joined the MEDICAL community. MEDICAL will offer them an online teaching resource for a Hospital Information System (HIS).

GNU Solidario and UNU are now working together in specific areas, such as the documentation process. GNU Solidario will also work with UNU in the installation of a demo server.

This is yet another great example of how free software can leverage the resources to help the developing countries. Many thanks to Mr Nurhizam Safie Mohd Satar who is leading the MEDICAL integration project at the United Nations University - International Institute for Global Health (IIGH).

This common effort will increase the amount of physicians using Free Software, and we will all benefit with their valuable feedback.

I take the opportunity to thank the United Nations and their Development Program - UNDP - ( http://www.undp.org
