Welcome Message from Kristine Sørensen


It is a great pleasure for the Executive Board of the International Health Literacy Association to welcome you to the very first Global Health Literacy Summit co-hosted with E-DA Healthgroup and I-Shou University in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.


The Global Health Literacy Summit is open to all and it will be an event where the vibrant health literacy community comes together to present new research, explore new practices and develop opportunities for new policy strategies that can enhance health literacy for all. We believe that health literacy is an asset for individuals, communities, organizations, systems and societies. Recognizing that health literacy is content and context specific, the Global Health Literacy Summit will make history by bringing experts, decision-makers, and practitioners together to explore health literacy in all its multiple dimensions.


The Global Health Literacy Summit provides an opportunity for the interest groups of the International Health Literacy Association to introduce their work; for inspirational keynotes to share their views; and for researchers and practitioners from across the world to present state of the art health literacy research, tools, methods and approaches. The Global Health Literacy Summit is an event not to be missed! See you in Taiwan!
