Design for Health Literacy: Transitions in Women’s Health

Health literacy can be understood as a person’s ability to understand, process and act on health-related information to support informed decision-making, translating onwards into improved health outcomes.  However, inequalities in health literacy creates significant complex challenges across individual, family, community and national contexts.  While health literacy is recognized as a driver for improved service delivery, policy development, community participation and education, Batterham et al, (2016) acknowledge that the translation of health literacy principles into practice can be a challenge.
