Get involved

GNU Health started in 2008 with a very small group of people, trying to provide primary care centers a system to improve preventive medicine. Today, thanks to the contribution of many scientists, physicians, social workers around the world, GNU Health has become a solid, award-winning Health and Hospital Information System. It has been translated to many different languages ( German, Spanish, Bahasa Indonesian, Portuguese, French, ... ). This is just the beginning. With your help we will be able to localize it to your country and hospital needs. If you are willing to participate of this great community, there are plenty of things to be done : translation, quality control, new functionality, localization, etc...
