The National institutes of Health (NIH) and Wikimedia, the nonprofit that runs, have collaborated in an effort to increase the availability and quality of health information. A July 16 Wikipedia Academy at the NIH campus in Bethesda, Md., marked the start of the partnership, which is an attempt to use Wikimedia’s communications prowess to spread the wealth of medical and public health information that NIH possesses.
