In 2014, the European Commission produced the Flash Eurobarometer report No. 404 “European citizens’ digital health literacy” with the aim of assessing the extent to which different European countries make use of the internet and online resources to manage health. Specifically, the report looks at:
– What kind of health-related information people seek, where and why they seek it.
– What means other than the Internet do people use to search for health-related information
– The expected future use of the internet for seeking health-related information
– The general health of European citizens
