Health Literacy Month
October 1-31, 2021
Building Health Literacy Awareness Through Action

For more than 20 years, October has been recognized as Health Literacy Month. Health Literacy Month is a time of international observance when hospitals, health centers, literacy programs, libraries, social service agencies, businesses, professional associations, govern­ment agencies, consumer alliances, and many other groups can work collaboratively to integrate and expand the mission of health literacy.

Health Literacy Month was founded by Helen Osborne and is now brought to you by the Institute for Healthcare Advancement (IHA).

This month, we will work together to shift from health literacy awareness to health literacy action by building a world where all individuals have access to quality health outcomes.
