Take a look at our licensing terms that provide guidance on how to share, adapt, and attribute our Digital Medic materials.

At Digital Medic, we believe that health education is a human right. That’s why all of our resources are free to access and share in diverse contexts across the world.

Creative Commons licensing ensures our content is broadly accessible while maintaining correct attribution. Our licensing approach is outlined in this overview that explains how to use and share Digital Medic content. 

The license types are broadly explained below, but please review the licensing terms and types with examples of attribution here.
