Conference Details : The first Global Health Literacy Summit takes place in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, 26-28 October 2020, hosted by IHLA and the E-DA Healthcare Group | I-Shou University. Health literacy is being placed on the political agenda in many countries in the world, aligned as a fundamental pillar for reaching United Nation Sustainable Development Goals SDGs. Health literacy allows the public and health workers to find, understand, evaluate, communicate, and use health information. Improvements in health literacy enable the public to act on information in order to live healthier lives and health workers to reduce errors, waste and health care costs. The upcoming international summit is the start of an era - mobilizing stakeholders around the world to promote a necessary structured and coordinated approach to improve health literacy for all. The Global Health Literacy 2020 Summit intends to bring all key stakeholders into one location for a fruitful exchange of research, policy and practice. The summit activities include presentations of research and practice developed by the IHLA´s various divisions, interest groups and affiliates, with the overarching theme of "health literacy for all".
