Özet

Objectives: The identification of health literacy has a crucial role in raising the level of health and improving health consciousness. To measure health literacy based on the public health approach, Pleasant and Kuruvilla developed the Public Health Literacy Knowledge Scale (PHLKS). The availability of PHLKS in different societies will contribute to situational investigation and community awareness by public health professionals. The aim of this study was to evaluate the validity and reliability of the PHLKS in Turkish society.
