Brief description Health literacy is the ability to find, understand and use health information and healthcare services effectively. The Fellowship will advance the understanding of health literacy. It will determine how poor health literacy might cause health inequalities and with this information, develop and test interventions to improve the response of the healthcare system. The research will make it easier for disadvantaged and vulnerable people to get care, be understood and have their needs recognised and met.
