> Hi everyone!
> I'm very happy to announce that the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees

> thematic organisation.
> Over the past several years, Wikimedia Medicine has successfully planned
> and executed a significant program portfolio, attracting new contributors
> and forming partnerships with both movement affiliates and external
> institutional partners around the world.  Wikimedia Medicine is an
> ambitious, innovative, and highly effective organization that has
> demonstrated a substantial record of independent programmatic impact and
> continues to foster innovation and collaboration with numerous other
> entities across the Wikimedia movement.
> Wikimedia Medicine's efforts to deliver critical medical information to
> underserved and underrepresented communities reflect the principles of
> infrastructure and inclusiveness espoused in the Wikimedia movement
> strategic direction, and represent a key potential area of growth for
> emerging movement communities.  The recognition of Wikimedia Medicine as a
> Wikimedia thematic organisation reinforces the our movement’s shared
> commitment to this direction, and will support Wikimedia Medicine's future
> partnerships with high-profile government institutions and NGOs.
> Wikimedia Medicine is our first truly global thematic organisation, and we
> hope that this recognition will be the first of many as our community of
> globally-focused Wikimedia user groups continues to evolve.
> I want to thank everyone who has been involved with setting up the new
> thematic organisation, and recognize their commitment and patience over the
> past year as we've worked through the thematic organisation recognition
> process.  Please join me in congratulating the entire Wikimedia Medicine
> team for their accomplishment!
