New report highlights links between literacy and health

A new report from the National Literacy Trust, 'Understanding the role of literacy in public health', shows how improving families’ literacy through tailored support can make them healthier.

It found that literacy is directly related to health, as it enables people to understand and act on information about their own well-being, treating illness effectively and preventing disease. The report recommends that a partnership-based local approach should become a fundamental part of public health strategies, as pioneered in the National Literacy Trust Hubs.
