Digital health literacy: how new skills can help improve health, equity and sustainability

People with lower social and economic status have a higher burden of disease. They also face more barriers to accessing and using information. Ensuring that they benefit from the digital transition requires action within health and other sectors; innovation within states and companies; the development of professionals and services; and wider improvements in education, and social justice and inclusion.

This EuroHealthNet Policy Précis takes stock of recent developments in the field of digital health literacy and what it means for health equity. It also looks at promising practices from our members on the ground and how further progress can be made across Europe.
