Welcome to IHLA News for Members

Newsletter of the International Health Literacy Association (IHLA)
Dear IHLA Members,
At this time of year, IHLA reflects on where we’ve been and where we are going. Health literacy as a field of study and practice has come a long way. IHLA too has come a long way. Here are some of the accomplishments for which we are excited and grateful:
  • We now have more than 600 members from 64 different countries!
  • We have 35 newly appointed members leading IHLA Standing Committees.
  • We have 10 member-initiated and organized special interest groups.
IHLA aims to be a positive influence for change and support health literacy efforts worldwide. We are especially grateful for you and your efforts to develop and improve health literacy locally, regionally, and globally. Happy New Year 2019.
Warm Regards,
Kristine Sørensen, IHLA President
Peter Chang, IHLA Vice-President
Sabrina Kurtz-Rossi, IHLA Secretary General
