Health Literacy San Diego

Health Literacy San Diego (HLSD) is a joint effort of CHIP and San Diego Council on Literacy with the mission to improve healthcare communication by addressing literacy abilities, language barriers and cultural differences.   HLSD work is based on When Words Get in the Way: A Collaborative Plan to Address Health Literacy in San Diego County.

Health literacy is the degree to which individuals have the skills and context needed to obtain and understand basic health information and services that help them make appropriate health decisions.
