Carl Fredrik edits medical information on Wikipedia

During the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, traditional media such as CNN, the BBC, or WHO was not where people turned most often for more information about the disease. It was Wikipedia.

“I find it to be a fun and important job”

Initially medical student Carl Fredrik Sjöland used Wikipedia as an aid for his own studies, then he began to discover minor errors or formulas that he could clarify and improve. 

Now he is active in the comprehensive international translation project intended to make medical information accessible to people in developing countries.
