Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)
Health information on Wikipedia continues to be among the most popular content in many language Wikipedias and health projects continue to be among the most frequently proposed in the Wikimedia community. This panel presents multiple people who have health-related projects in any language of any Wikimedia project, and gives an overview for the general Wikimedia community beyond just those who are usually interested in health articles.

The panel composition will be as follows:

  1. High priority - people who do health and have never attended Wikimania before, people who are not from Western world, people who are not yet certain to attend Wikimania, anyone who proposed a health talk which was not selected
  2. Medium priorty - people who have attended Wikimania in the past, people who are good speakers but who have talked in past years
  • GLAM Outreach
