Basic literacy refers to the ability to read even simple language. Health literacy is defined as the degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain process and understand basic health information and services needed to make appropriate health decisions (National Coalition for Literacy 2009). Unfortunately according to a Department of Education report on health literacy only 12% of adults aged 16 and older are considered to have a proficient level of health literacy (U.S. Department of Education 2006).
