Poor health literacy is a key challenge both in the UK. The issue is complex and can seriously impact a person’s ability to look after themselves, care for those around them and access the health services they need.

That is why medDigital have partnered with the Self Care Forum to help deliver a coordinated approach between non-government organisations (NGOs), pharma, government and the wider life sciences industry to provide clear and understandable health information to the people who need it.
