Policy dialogue on health literacy among the ageing population - 28 January 2015

28 January 2015

On 28 January 2015, a policy dialogue on health literacy will take place at the European Parliament, in Brussels.

Hosted by Austrian MEP Heinz Becker (EPP) and organised by the IROHLA project, the event will include a round of presentations about the IROHLA project, the importance of health literacy, the work on healthy ageing in general and also an update on what the European Commission is doing on these topics.

We will have discussions with Members of the European Parliament, policy advisers and decision makers as well as other important stakeholders in order to figure out what gaps there are that need to be closed and how policy guidelines can be developed and implemented so that older populations’ health literacy needs can be met in the best way possible.
