Debian Pure Blend

An even more important difference than the more general approach compared to the other repositories, is the fact that Debian Med is not only about just packaging software. The Debian Med project is one of the earliest so called Debian Pure Blends and aims to do more for the comfort of their users than adding binary packages to the Debian package pool. The main goal is to turn Debian into the distribution of choice for people working in the field of medicine and to make Debian an operating system that is particularly well suited for the requirements of medical practice and research. The goal of Debian Med is a complete system for all tasks in medical care that is built completely on Free Software.
