Retrospective Evaluation of the National Literacy and Health Program (2004)

Final Report

Literacy is an important determinant of health. Literacy also affects other factors that determine health such as income, access to jobs, education and social supports. Almost half of Canadians have low literacy skills, and these Canadians are more likely to have poor health than those with higher levels of literacy. They are more likely to be living with chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
