Specifically focusing on the question: ‘With digital technologies playing an increasingly key role in health projects, how can we make sure communities with low literacy levels aren’t left behind?’

The discussion will also include a focus on some interventions used to improve literacy skills; and, some of the types of digital technologies that are revolutionising the way people learn about health issues (such as e-health websites, videos and mobile health apps). There will be an opportunity to discuss issues further with panellists in Q&A sessions.
