Health literacy policies – how can they be developed and implemented

As health literacy is considered critical to the achievement of health, and limited health literacy is still a widespread phenomenon, the topic is steadily gaining more interest from policy- and decision-makers. To meet the growing demand of decision-makers, a policy guide “Health literacy policies – how can they be developed and implemented?” was initiated to support policy-/decision-makers and administrators in implementing effective policies and actions to improve health literacy of the population on a national level. It is a product of M-POHL, initiated and sponsored by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health together with WHO/Europe and the Austrian National Public Health Institute.
Countries are invited to contribute to the knowledge transfer by sending a video sharing their national experiences on health literacy policy work and in implementing health interventions The guide and the videos can be found HERE.
