A GitHub resource listing active and awesome project in Health IT in Global Health

By Melek Somai | 28 May, 2017

Hi all,

I started a new GitHub project to list all the resources (open source softwares, open access books, OA articles, etc.) related to health information technology in global health.

The initiative is to:
(1) help our community collect and maintain a curated list of resources to support global health initiative in IT using a collaborative approach following the open source model in software engineering.
(2) expose our community to the wider open source audience. Unfortunately, the global health community is still confined within its perimeter and is taking partially (not fully) advantage of the new tools/platform used by other communities in other industries.

What is Awesome List?
Awesome List is a simple mundane open source initiative based on sharing a document containing a list of curated resources. The lists are curated and maintained by the community. It uses GitHub as a central repository and its pull-request feature to organise the collaborative curation process.

Anyone can create an awesome list. Hundreds of "Awesome List" are available: from programming language, to data science, to philosophy. There is even one for healthcare. A central list of Awesome Lists is available, and you can visit it by following this link: https://github.com/sindresorhus/awesome

What is Awesome List for Digital Global Health?
I have created a GitHub repository to maintain a list of valuable resources. Initially, developed for the Global eHealth course I teach at Imperial College, I quickly realised that it would be awesome to share it with the community and have everybody contributing to it. I'm using the CC0 licence which means that anyone can copy, fork, distribute, edit, etc...

The Awesome List for Digital Global Health is available on Github: https://github.com/protactinium/Awesome-Digital-Global-Health

How to contribute?
To contribute, you need to have an account on GitHub and to follow the guidelines (https://github.com/protactinium/Awesome-Digital-Global-Health/blob/master/CON...). Please feel free to post a question, an issue, or just to get in touch using the issue board on Github: https://github.com/protactinium/Awesome-Digital-Global-Health/issues.

I look forward to receiving your pull-requests (edits) and working to support an awesome global health IT.

regards,
Melek

This is awesome Melek, thank you!

This will also be a very important resource for the Digital Health and Interoperability Working Group of the Health Data Collaborative - https://www.healthdatacollaborative.org.
