rules and regulations to control high risk lifestyles and encourage new patterns of behavior that will develop the health skills of the Thai people and enhance their healthliteracy (HL). At the 7th World Health Promotion Conference October 26-30, 2009, in Nairobi, Kenya, the World Health Organization put member states on notice to focus on the development of public health knowledge, or health intelligence, with an emphasis on the cognitive and social skills that empowers individuals and enables them to access knowledge, and to understand and use the information to
Die gesundheitliche Lage Studierender in Deutschland ist insgesamt gut ( Meier, Krämer & Stock, 2007 ). Im Zusammenhang mit der gesundheitlichen Lage und im Kontext der Gesundheitsförderung gewinnt HealthLiteracy bzw. Gesundheitskompetenz zunehmend an Bedeutung ( Dierks, 2017 ; Schaeffer & Pelikan, 2017 ). Gesundheitskompetenz wird in Verbindung mit der Auswahl und der Nutzung von Versorgungsdienstleistungen, mit Gesundheitsverhalten und in größerer Breite mit der Einbettung von Menschen in ein psychosoziales System diskutiert, das Gesundheit

Background. Health literacy is a critical determinant of women’s and children’s health and therefore has immense consequences for the health of society as well. Evidence from epidemiological, clinical and experimental studies indicates that unhealthy lifestyles and risky behavioural habits of parents before conception and during pregnancy influence the etiology of various health defects. Decreasing primary risk factors, practicing physical wellness, monitoring physiological markers and preparing for labour, breastfeeding and newborn care should be the main parental responsibilities during the prenatal period.
Methods. Our study focused on specifying the main determinants of health literacy among 360 pregnant Czech women by using an anonymous questionnaire and selected anthropometric data of mothers. The criteria for study participation produced a sample representing 1.41% of Czech women in labour during a given 2012 reference period.
Results. Despite quite adequate knowledge of both risks and supporting factors for pregnancy and foetal development, the lifestyles of a majority of the women surveyed were far from optimum: only 30% reported good dietary and physical activity habits, 24% were active or passive smokers and one third of the women occasionally drank alcohol, more often among those who were university educated.
Conclusion. Our results have confirmed previously published data noting that health literacy and a healthier lifestyle of pregnant women are associated with a higher level of education (except for alcohol drinking) and with contact with a midwife (in some examined parameters) in prenatal courses
Healthliteracy concerns the knowledge and competences of individuals to meet the complex demands of health in modern society. Although its importance is increasingly recognized, there are no good studies of healthliteracy assessment, monitoring, and evaluation over time to give a sense of the effectiveness of public health and clinical interventions to empower the public and patients to improve health [ 1 ].
As a result of the 7th Global Conference on Health Promotion held in 2009. WHO encouraged member states to focus on the public health development based
