Ten years ago we were at the brink of a new adventure. Little did we know what impact the European Health Literacy Project would have in policy, research and practice. We are now about to make a new turning point when even more countries are engaging to make sure that we meet people´s needs in ways that accommodated their competencies.
Looking ahead - what will the new decade bring?
Will we eventually see a health literate system where health literacy responses are build-in integrations, rather than add-on applications? Will health literacy be a mainstream concept known by every child in school in line with math, geography and physics? Will citizens be able to improve their health literacy as part of life-long learning?
We are the shapers of the future - let us make sure that we bring about the change that we would like to see.
Happy New Year!
