60% of all Australian adults have low health literacy and numeracy skills – being below what is considered the minimum needed to meet everyday life and work demands.
People’s health literacy significantly impacts the way in which they: seek out, understand and use information to make decisions about their health.
To make a real impact on health literacy we need to focus on making our organisations, workplaces and environments easy to find, simple to navigate and clear to understand.
