Abstract

Health literacy is an increasingly important issue amongst scholars of health studies and medical practitioners. This essay seeks to understand how health knowledge is co-constructed by different agencies and the role of health communication in this process can contribute to everyday-ing health literacy. In addition, this essay attempts to understand how health communication becomes an everyday practice in identifying disease-specific needs. Copyright © 2016 The Author(s).
