Description & Coverage
Description:

This book serves as a channel for indigenous peoples, national policies, and international treaties to discuss the ways in which people in the digital society seek to discover, choose, and create health-related information. Health literacy has been a critical public health approach in the field of health communication. According to the treaties and many country-based studies, literacy means that information is comprehended, transforming what is read from information to knowledge. This book conceives the internet as a landscape and the manner in which people traverse it, including the intricate entanglements between online and physical domains.
