We are particularly excited to have the honor of hosting the event in Taiwan to promote health literacy, which is especially important in our continuous health services in these communities.  Another unique achievements of us is the success of our minimally invasive surgery training center, Ircad Taiwan, with the technique demonstrated to be most useful in serving the patients of difficult access.

#Greetings from President AHLA

Welcome Remarks

Dear AHLA members, Directors of the AHLA country offices, the international affiliates, global partners of health literacy, friends and colleagues,

You are warmly invited to join the 8th AHLA International Conference, which will be jointly organized by the Show Chwan Medical Group and held at Oct 27-29, in Chang Hua, Taiwan. The 8th AHLA has been postponed by the unpredicted Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021, which provides the global community a renewed lesson that the health literacy is essential for healthcare in its quality and effectiveness.

During the pandemic, the benefits of adequate health literacy serve to help the public in active and timely preventive measures, like vaccination or wearing masks. Health literacy also facilitates effective implementation of social distancing and contact tracing. The later have been demonstrated as the effective public health measures against the transmission of the coronaviruses. During the past 2 years, the global community and the human civilization have been impacted with the novel viruses, as well as the unpreparedness in meeting the challenges of the emerging global public health issues. The covid-19 pandemic is not the only concern. There are other challenges in climate changes and the goals set in the MDGs, which needs better management, consensus, and communications between the global health communities.

The 8th AHLA, as we are overcoming the pandemic, will serve the interest of the public health and healthcare sectors across the region. The 8th AHLA will relink the members and the communities on the following themes:

Health literacy and quality of healthcare services

Health literacy beyond pandemics

Health literacy and social resilience

Health literacy by the people and the public

Creation of health literacy for the patients

Health literacy in aging society

I wish to meet you in person in the 8th AHLA Conference, and please join us to create a healthier era in the future.
 
Prof. Peter Chang
President
Asian Health Literacy Association
