Keywords:Health literacy, COVID-19, Information science, Philippines, Health informatics, Health literacy education, health literacy research
This paper highlights the important role of health literacy during the COVID-19 pandemic, including how information professionals can help equip Filipinos with sufficient health literacy to protect them from similar global health crises in the future. While so much needs to be done to improve health literacy education, the author advocates for a greater research culture among information professionals (and students) so that we can generate locally made insights to influence health literacy policy, education, and research in the Philippines.
