Abstract

It brings us great pleasure to present this special issue on health literacy of the Journal of Health Communication. This is the fourth year that the journal has dedicated an issue to this important and evolving topic and we greatly appreciate their continued commitment to this growing area of research. We hope that this year’s special issue will continue to generate discussion and inform future research and practice initiatives to promote the field of health literacy.
