DEVELOPMENT OF A TRAINING PROGRAM FOR IMPROVING DIGITAL HEALTH LITERACY OF MIGRANTS / MIG-DHL
Aim and task
The aim of the European project MIG-DHL is the improvement of the digital health literacy of migrants, especially of refugees who have entered Germany in the last five years. Digital health literacy describes the ability to independently search, find, understand, and evaluate health-related information using digital tools and to use this ability to answer health-related questions. The aim of the project is to create training materials as well as a digital learning platform to increase migrants' digital health literacy. These training measures aim to enable migrants to take more responsibility for their own health and to establish an awareness of preventive behaviour to prevent diseases, for example in the form of a healthier lifestyle.
The IAT is responsible for project management and the development of training materials.
The project started with a digital kick-off event in November 2020 and is scheduled to run until the end of October 2022.
