Washington: Researchers have claimed that literacy has a greater impact on public health in India than income.The researchers from Cambridge`s Department of Sociology, accepted that it is mostly true that "wealthier is healthier" across the roughly 500 districts in India`s `major states,` accounting for 95 percent of the total population, but found that poverty and, more crucially, illiteracy are much stronger indicators of poor public health than low average income.Researchers said that a poor district can nonetheless enjoy relatively good public health if it has a high literacy rate.Literacy acts as a base, enabling populations to understand medicine labeling, access healthcare, and engage with public health programmes.
