Strengthening Health Equity with Health Literacy

The enhanced National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services in Health and Health Care (CLAS) consist of guidelines for providing culturally and linguistically appropriate health care services to increasingly diverse populations. Healthcare organizations, such as yours, already have many services that align with the CLAS standards.

Health literacy integration can be a valuable focus as your organization continues to provide ways to advance health equity. One place to consider is by aligning health literacy with each of your organization’s existing health equity projects and initiatives.
