Health literacy in Swiss health strategy 2030

Health literacy forms an integral part of the new Swiss Health Strategy 2030. The strategy itself is easy and transparent to understand. It lays out the foundations for a healthy life. It promotes health literacy to "empower citizens to make well-informed, responsible and risk-aware decisions that determine their own health and that of their relatives with support from qualified healthcare professionals. Citizens are encouraged to access solidarity-based healthcare services in a responsible manner". Equipped with adequate health literacy one can be prepared to deal with almost anything - similarly, as a Swiss pocket knife.
