IDEAHL specific objectives:


Conduct a comprehensive mapping of health literacy (HL) and (digital) health literacy ((d)HL) research in the EU and beyond by reviewing policies, academic and non-academic works, EU funded projects, and existing practices on HL and (d)HL. 


Involve, in project activities, a network of “champions” and “survivors” from the identified (d)HL practices across the EU and beyond. The purpose will be to foster knowledge exchange, facilitate the replication of the best performing initiatives, and sharing testimonies from those initiatives that failed or experienced particular difficulties. The network will thus contribute to advancing the understanding of (d)HL and how it can be used to improve health outcomes and digital empowerment for health management of citizens.


Shape, facilitate, and coordinate the co-creation and development of a European Strategy in improving (d)HL for the benefit of all citizens. To co-design the Strategy with stakeholders, IDEAHL will put in place a varied set of inclusive co-creation activities – from traditional face to face co-creation workshops to an EU-scale, cross-border, online co-creation exercise.


Pilot several initiatives and actions identified by the EU Strategy at project country/region level. Monitor their progress and evaluate their impact for final fine turning.


Analyse HL and (d)HL levels across Member States by reviewing existing monitoring mechanisms and indicators. Based on this analysis and the experiences from the Strategy pilot, develop a unique set of EU monitoring mechanisms and indicators to assess HL and (d)HL levels and their evolution in Member States.


Engage health and non-health sectors such as education, innovation, healthcare, social services, Medtech, media, etc, along with citizens and patients, with inclusion of vulnerable groups, in the co-creation, planning, implementation, and evaluation of the strategy. Ensure support by EU, national, and local policy makers.
