The project DHeLiDA: Digital Health Literacy for Disadvantaged Adults is a European cooperation project aimed at improving the digital health literacy among vulnerable target groups, especially elderly people and people with migrant background, by helping them gain new digital skills and learn how to access reliable sources on a topic as important as health. DHeLiDA will develop tools to enable citizens to better manage their health and illness online, improve prevention, enable more accurate diagnosis and treatment, and facilitate communication between patients and health care professionals.
DHeLiDA intends to fill the digital health literacy gap through the production of three main outputs:
- Crowdsourcing Platform on Digital Health Literacy;
- DigCompHealth Foundation Framework;
- DHeLIDA Training and sustainability Toolkit.
