This is the report of a 36-week project designed to examine the nature of the relationship between literacy levels and the ability to engage in health promotion strategies. For the project, two learners at Level 1 and two learners at Level 2 were matched individually with tutors. Each pair then chose a health issue to research and a method to share their experience with Learners, learning networks, and others in their communities. The project was designed to help Learners gain a better understanding of their own health, which over time may lead to an increase in their abilities to assume greater control over their health. It also provided an opportunity for literacy staff and other project partners to enhance their health promotion capacity.
