IROHLA is a project that focused on improving health literacy for older people in Europe. It took stock of on-going health literacy programmes and projects and identified and validated a set of 20 interventions, which together constitute a comprehensive approach for addressing the health literacy needs of the ageing population in Europe. These interventions are part of an evidence-based guideline for policy and practice for local, regional and national government authorities to start action.
Some policy briefs have been produced and are available here
