Consulta Europa, a SME specialised in the management of research, education and innovation projects based in the Canary Islands, and a member of IDEAHL project, has successfully concluded a series of co-creation sessions with young women. These sessions constitute an integral part of the IDEAHL project, which aims to involve over 1,000 stakeholders in shaping interventions for enhanced digital health literacy.
Over the course of three sessions, young women from diverse backgrounds came together to discuss and address the critical issues surrounding digital health literacy. The sessions provided a platform for open dialogue, collaboration, and the exchange of ideas on how to improve access to reliable health information in the digital age.
The discussions revolved around the unique challenges young women face in navigating the vast digital landscape. From distinguishing accurate health information from misinformation to addressing language barriers and cultural nuances, the sessions delved into the specific needs of this target group.
The significance of focusing on young women cannot be overstated. By empowering young women with digital health literacy skills, we not only enable them to take control of their health but also foster a generation of informed and proactive health advocates.
While these co-creation sessions mark an important milestone, Consulta Europa recognizes that there is still much work to be done. The outcomes of these sessions will serve as a foundation for developing targeted interventions and initiatives that directly address the challenges faced by young women in accessing reliable health information online. Continued collaboration, stakeholder engagement, and ongoing evaluation will be key to the success and sustainability of these interventions.
The IDEAHL project remains committed to its mission of improving digital health literacy for all. By leveraging the insights gained from these co-creation sessions, all project partners will continue working towards a future where everyone can navigate the digital landscape confidently and make informed decisions about their health.
