Description

About half of people who use medicines do not use them as directed, and 36% of U.S. adults have limited health literacy skills which makes it hard for them to manage their health. The FDA Office of Women's Health launched the Take Time to Care program to provide women with easy-to-understand health information. OWH launched a new initiative to promote medication safety among women with disabilities or limited English proficiency.
