Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)

Wikipedia is in the first place where people around the world visit to know about something in detail. As an editor, I understand the steps and care taken for the reliability of the content that is provided. These days we can see websites and encyclopedia about a Medicines (Tablets, Syrups, Injections and etc...). There are websites which are competing to the wiki on this field. That's why I propose to have a new project in name of WikiMed/WikiHealth that includes details of drugs. Chemical components used, Precautions, When should it be taken, Possible side effects and etc.. are some details that could bring up a useful information for visitors.To explain medical conditions as well. I found there is a project since 2012 in Wiki Project Med . The new proposal can be merged as a project along with it and having a stand alone new project will be very fruitful. Need volunteers and Experts for discussion. Kindly support my proposal here:

  1. I like the basic idea of providing more granular information, but think it would be more impactful if done through Wikidata (where this is already happening to a good extent). Daniel Mietchen (talk) 03:27, 9 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]
