Health Literacy. The Solid Facts

    This is a WHO Euro publication edited among others by Jürgen M. Pelikan, one of the principal investigators of the Diabetes Literacy project, and with contributions of four other Diabetes Literacy partners: Gerardine Doyle, Diane Levin-Zamir, Kristine Sørensen and Stephan Van den Broucke.  As societies grow more complex and people are increasingly confronted with health (mis-)information, health literacy becomes essential. With evidence from the European Health Literacy Survey, this report identifies effective ways public health can strengthen health literacy in a variety of settings.
