About the Health Literacy Hub

Welcome to the Health Literacy Hub

The Hub is an initiative of Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD), in collaboration with the University of Sydney.

Our goal is to make healthy choices easier for everyone by connecting people to information and ideas to improve health.

Members of the public can use this site to find advice on how to:

  • get the most from conversations with their health provider
  • find a health service
  • access reliable information about their health
  • connect with other websites offering consumer advice on health and specific illnesses.

Health professionals who register with the Hub can access a wide range of educational materials and programs, practical tools and advice on health literacy.
