Decreasing Social Inequlities as a New Priority in Health Promotion – the Latest European and Global Tendency
Languages of publication
Increasing percentage of old population and main causes of morbidity and mortality in European countries clearly indicate great importance of the effective health promotion and noncommunicable disease prevention interventions. Numerous research, conferences and policies of European Union and WHO suggest that elimination of social inequalities are crucial for reducing health inequalities. Low health literacy is linked to poorer health status and higher rates of hospital admission, less likely adherence to prescribed treatments and care plans, experience of more drug and treatment errors, and less use of preventive services. Thus, health literacy is necessary for adequate patient engagement in health promotion action.
