What is the Statewide Health Literacy Hub (the Hub)?

The Hub is a NSW Health initiative that builds and advances health literacy leadership and capacity at local and system levels. 


An equitable healthcare system is one where everyone can easily access, understand and use healthcare services. The Hub supports healthcare organisations to improve equity for NSW communities through a focus on health literacy.


The mission of the Hub is to support healthcare organisations to apply health literacy to:

  • improvements in clinical safety and quality,
  • consumer and community engagement in healthcare, and
  • research innovation and its translation into practice.

We do this by

Building and advancing leadership and capacity at local levels to…

  • Build awareness and capacity in health literacy
  • Foster partnerships and knowledge sharing in health literacy
  • Enhance systemwide processes and resource implementation
  • Develop and grow health literacy research, translation and dissemination
  • Empower consumer/community to achieve outcomes that matter to them
