The Gippsland Primary Care Partnerships are excited to announce the release of the Gippsland Guide to becoming a Health Literate Organisation!

Why is it important to be a health literate organisation?

  • To support consumers to manage their own health effectively
  • To support safe and effective use of primary health resources
  • Organisational health literacy will result in improved health outcomes for clients
