This is yet another great example of how free software can leverage resources to help 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 collaborative effort will increase the amount of physicians using free software, and we will all benefit from their valuable feedback.
