How Culture Affects Health Literacy

Did you know that the Institute of Medicine acknowledges that culture significantly affects health literacy levels and is a driver for health disparities, ultimately affecting health outcomes of individuals (IOM, 2004)?


To achieve better community health outcomes and reduce health disparities in response to the growing rate of cultural diversity in the United states, it is vital to emphasize the impact of cultural competence on health literacy, healthcare utilization, disease prevention, treatment, management, and overall health outcomes.
