“Towards Sustainable Health Systems: The IROHLA evidence-based guidelines on improving health literacy in the ageing population”
On 17th November, the Intervention Research into Health Literacy of the Ageing population (IROHLA) Consortium hosted a pre-conference launching the results of the IROHLA Project - Towards Sustainable Health Systems: The IROHLA evidence-based guidelines on improving health literacy in the ageing population.
The Consortium presented a policy brief for the European Commission and for Governments in the Member States on how to incorporate health literacy into health systems. It provided guidance to development of new interventions in the area of health literacy, and many concrete best practices, tools and instruments for practitioners in Europe. During the conference the new website for health literacy interventions in Europe was launched.
The discussion with European and National politicians and opinion leaders focused on sustainable introduction of health literacy practices in European member states.
The programme is available here.
