Health literacy in Israel-From measurement to intervention: Two case studies

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


This report focuses on opportunities, challenges and outcomes of health literacy related interventions in Israel, based on health literacy measurement. The importance of a system's and community approaches are discussed, as is cultural appropriateness. Two case studies are highlighted-the first on childhood immunization and the second on self-management of chronic health situations. In the second example, a combination of community, media, digital, and face-to-face interventions comprise a broad approach to intervention. The impact and some findings are presented, including conclusions derived from each initiative.
